Jones the Boats

We offer regular trips across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, running daily from Easter to October at 12, 1, 2 and 3pm each day. Longer trips are available to parties of 20+. We also have a restaurant boat for groups of 10 - 20 passengers to enjoy a meal on trips of 2 hours or more. Sunday Lunch on board is a popular trip for which it is necessary to book in advance. Both boats have a licensed bar and toilets on board. On shore, our cafe provides hot and cold snacks and drinks, while mementos and postcards can be found in our gift shop. Meanwhile, the history of the canal and of our site can be studied in our Heritage Gallery.

This listing has been added by a third party and we take no responsibility for information given.

Disability Access Information

The on-shore facilities (car park, cafe, toilets) are all accessible for wheelchair users. The boats, however, are not. W/chair users can get to the side of the boat and there is always plenty of help to assist them to board. Rule of thumb - if you can get on a bus, you can get on the boat!

  • Path slope no steeper than 1 in 10
