We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and the kids loved it too. From the aqueduct to the tunnel they loved travelling along it on the canal boat. A must do.

Hi, sorry can't help you with the 45 min boat ride ticket, but, if you contact the Llangollen Tourist Information I'm sure they can point you in the right direction. Thanks for asking, CW

Sadly NOT at Chirk ( only if you hitch a ride ) but the LLangollen Viaduct does trips across that Viaduct from Trevor side you can walk across and ride a barge back ..

There is a cafe very close to both the chirk tunnel and aquaduct that has free parking for the walk and is lovely to pop in for a cuppa. It's just across the road from the aquaduct and tunnel.
