Day and holiday boat operator Anglo Welsh Waterways is now offering visitors to Trevor Basin the opportunity to enjoy a boat trip across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, aboard its newly refurbished trip boat ‘Seren Fach’.

Seren Fach’, or ‘Little Star’ in English, offers skippered boat trips across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct six days a week.

The 45min return trip will take clients across the World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, towering 126ft (38.4m) high with amazing views across the Dee Valley.


We’ve been operating self-drive holiday narrowboats and day boats from Trevor for many years, and now we can also offer visitors to Trevor the chance to enjoy a skippered boat trip on the Llangollen Canal. Our knowledgeable team will provide commentary on board, so passengers can learn more about the historical significance of the Llangollen Canal as they cruise gently along.”

‘Seren Fach’ operates daily (except Tuesdays), offering space for up to 48 passengers. The first trip departs from Canal Wharf, Trevor Basin, Llangollen at 11am, and the last at 3.30pm.

Refreshments are available to purchase on board, so visitors can relax with a hot or cold drink, or an ice-cream while enjoying stunning views across the Dee Valley. No booking is required and the trips are subject to availability.

Further information can be found on the Anglo Welsh website or by calling the bookings team on 0117 304 1122.
