Llangollen History Trail :- The stunning 6 mile Llangollen History Trail starts in Llangollen, visiting several historic landmarks such as Horseshoe Falls. Some sections can be challenging with stiles, kissing gates and steep stairs. Renowned for the surrounding hills and the River Dee.

A must see. The interior is wonderful. Rug Chapel (pronounced Rig) is a Cadw site - but if you belong to English Heritage you get free admission. Rug Chapel, Llangar Chuch (unfortunately not open due to lack of staff/volunbteers ) and Gwydir Uchaf Chapel are...More
