25 locks, 55 miles, around 28 hours
The most popular canal in the country, the Llangollen is not for the tourist but the purist. Lacking in towns and visitor attractions it is the canal itself that is the attraction.
Out of season is the best time to enjoy this unspoilt canal as over 400 boats a day use it during the summer months. And be aware that, in parts, the draught is only 2ft 3ins.
