Postcard from Llangollen

The Welsh town Llangollen has far more to offer than just the stop of the vintage Llangollen Railway line.However, if you do arrive on the steam train, why not enjoy the views of the vintage railway from across the river? Opposite the railway station on the other side of the river Dee is the Corn Mill Pub. Enjoy a cold beer and great views from it's beergarden above the river!



Do you like to read? Why not stroll into town and have a coffee or scone at "Café and Books" on Castle Street? It's the café with the yellow front on the left hand side of the street. While the downstairs room is a café, the entire upstairs is a second hand bookstore. Some rare and antique items can be found there. Though the shelves are quite narrow, the store has this "bookstore feel" to it. It smells of old paper, the wooden floor makes noises when you walk on it and there are cupboards full of books on the stairway!

Plas Newydd, 1/4 miles outside town, was the home of the two eccentric ladies of Llangollen. They built the house as their new home and retreat. The gardens are especially nice in summer.

But you can also enjoy going on the canal, and having your canalboat towed by a horse from Llangollen Wharf. Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is just a few miles outside town.
If you are up for a walk, you can also visit Dinas Bran, the ruins of a castle high above the settlement. You should take good walking shoes, though and enjoy the views of the surroundings of Llangollen in good weather!
