Celebrate World Heritage Day at Llangollen Canal World Heritage Site

The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Llangollen Canal World Heritage Site will be celebrating World Heritage Day on Saturday 21 April with fantastic family events near its Trevor Basin Visitor Centre.

Ponty Valley

We've organised a range of exciting activities for both adults and children, including free guided walks, canoe taster sessions, wood carving, stalls and an opportunity to build a bird box.

Between 11am and 3pm, visitors will be able to drop in and enjoy any of the activities, as well as discover more about volunteering or becoming a Friend of the Canal & River Trust. Entry to Trevor Basin Visitor Centre is free of charge.

Lynda Slater, Trevor Basin Visitor Centre manager explained: "The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and 11 mile Llangollen Canal are part of a very exclusive club of outstanding buildings or monuments across the globe which have been designated World Heritage Site status.

"Along with iconic places such as the Taj Mahal and the Pyramids, we will be celebrating what makes us special. As we start the new summer season, we would love lots of people to come and visit us, and discover more about North Wales's stunning Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, which is Britain's highest, longest aqueduct, a grade one-listed and scheduled ancient monument."

The Trevor Basin Visitor Centre is open every day, 10am – 4pm, until the end of October.
