Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen more coach tours come into North East Wales from visiting ships at Liverpool & Holyhead.
Therefore, to build on this success, we’ve made this short itinerary film for the Dee Valley to showcase on ships visiting the British Isles in 2018 and beyond!
Have you visited any of these stunning places yet?

Visit ‘One of the Wonders of Wales’ and be in awe of the stunning architecture of this beautiful church.
Chirk Castle was completed in 1310 during the reign of the conquering Edward I to subdue the last princes of Wales. Built on an outcrop above the meeting point of the rivers Dee and Ceiriog, the imposing silhouette of the castle was a brooding statement of English intent in these disputed lands.
Chirk Castle has over 480 acres of estate parkland for you to explore, with wild ponies, sheep, veteran trees, and a beautifully preserved section of Offa’s Dyke. The estate is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has also been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest as an important habitat for rare invertebrates, bats, fungi, and wild flowers.
We also boast stunning food in North East Wales and all eateries are based around providing the best hospitality possible.
Currently, we are running our Year of the Sea Food Challenge which celebrates our seafood offer to the world.
Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and canal consists of a continuous group of civil engineering features from the heroic phase of transport improvements during the British Industrial Revolution. The canal brought water borne transport from the English lowlands into the rugged terrain of the Welsh uplands, using innovative techniques to cross two major river valleys and the ridge between them. It was built between 1795 and 1808 by two outstanding figures in the development of civil engineering: Thomas Telford and William Jessop. Through their dynamic relationship the canal became a testing ground for new ideas that were carried forward into subsequent engineering practice internationally.
Our small section of line, which in its day went from Ruabon to Barmouth taking people to the seaside on holiday and transporting various goods including slate and chemicals, offers a sample of the sights and sounds of yesteryear. The line follows the picturesque River Dee, classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), for its entire length, passing through some of the finest natural beauty North Wales has to offer.
