good stiff uphill walk from centre of town pass the canal walk by RHS of school and upwards. Its a complete ruin, but worth a look. Terrific views of the vale of Llangollen.

Worth the walk up for the great views over Llangollen and the Valley - and very close to a fine stretch of Offa's Dyke Path

Nice steep walk so you get views quickly. The kids (12,12,8) all enjoyed it too. Amazing 360 degree views from the top. Easy parking on the road nearby.

Climbed up and was worth it. Views are spectacular so don't leave llangollen without doing it. Coming down is very easy so just push yourself and do it.

As the title suggests. Follow the wharf signs from the town. Left at the T junction, past the school and there is a sharp right turn. The path starts up that road but there is NO car parking at all. The climb is steep and...More

We enjoyed the journey up and the views from the top. There's not a lot of the castle left but that doesn't make it any less worth the walk. I have to say we were stunned by the number of self-entitled individuals who, despite being...More

If you want to feel on top f the world, climb the hill to the top and take in the breathtaking scenery that stretches as far as you can see. Learn about the history and watch the sun set for a really magical experience.

There are several routes up so you can either park in the town and head over the bridge and follow the signs (quite lengthy), or do like I did and drive along the A542 (Horseshoe Pass) and take the first right after the... More

If you drive as close as possible to the footpath, it takes about 20-30 minutes. A good pair of walking boots advised.

I'd go for the pub/public pay and display car park at the bottom just before you turn into Llangollen from Ruabon way coming in, its on the left hand side. Walk up the road, past the taxidermist and the canal tourist spot... More
