Just outside Llangollen is the Horseshoe Falls a beautiful spot with a few walks taking you through some breathtaking countryside. A word off warning the Carpark is not huge and can be full with canoeists. We were lucky and managed to get parked.

We arrived at Horseshoe falls on a horse drawn boat from Llangollen wharf. Wow, what a way to arrive. The falls were beautiful and very peaceful. We could have stayed longer to enjoy the views and the peace, but had booked a return journey on...More

The town is an absolute delight with lots of great small shops,its like travelling back in time to a much slower pace of life. We visited the horseshoe falls on a lovely sunny day,very understated and not actually a waterfall,still worth a visit.

when you park the car, walk round past the toilet block, head down left, gentle slope down, when you at bottom the whole area easily accessible for kids & dogs. Remember to visit Llantysilio church its a 1/4 mile walk around.
