We’ve listed our favourite 10 things to do on your visit to Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and the Trevor Basin Visitor Centre – but there’s loads more to discover and explore…
You’ll find out lots of interesting facts about the aqueduct and area, be able to handle some of the tools the builders used, learn about how they built Ponty and have a go at building our wooden aqueduct model.
If you’ve got a head for heights that is. Remember to take your camera for all those amazing views. Just be careful when you take your selfies and to hold your young child’s hand if they are with you.
Or tea - and a freshly made baguette, slice of cake or ice-cream from the Canalside coffee shop. Then just kick back and watch the boats drift by.
But don’t worry if you didn’t bring your bike with you. You can hire one www.hirecycles2go.co.uk. You'll need to walk your bike over the aqueduct itself and remember to ring your bell when you go under bridges and to warn other people that you want to share the space.
Remember - bread isn’t good for ducks' tummies, so please keep our ducks healthy by buying our special duck food from our Visitor Centre.
Our Friends get a range of benefits:
You'll find a range of picture souvenirs, along with books, maps and many locally hand crafted gifts for you to buy at our little shop at the Visitor Centre.
