Llangollen Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout North Wales...

Llangollen stands on the banks of the River Dee close to the Shropshire Border. It became a popular holiday destination thanks in part to the Victorians who came for the stunning scenery and the fresh air. Today, it is as popular as ever and has excellent shopping facilities, not to mention superb restaurants and pubs.

There are many historical attractions in the town, including the Iron Age Dinas Bran Castle which overlooks the town and the medieval Valle Crucis Abbey and town bridge.

Many of the town's other attractions are firmly rooted in its past... the Llangollen Wharf, Plas Newydd, the home of the Ladies of Llangollen and Llangollen Railway.
