The tranquil area around the forest is the perfect place to unwind and to escape the world and stresses of the day. The forest will be the setting for the Magical Mythfest Family Festival in September, and there isn’t a better place to host this magical event then in this magical forest.

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct


The ‘Stream in the Sky’ is the most iconic landmark that is present in North East Wales. This has been rubber stamped by UNESCO as it has gained World Heritage Site status as part of an 11 mile canal system.

This is your selfie moment, if you are brave enough to cross into the middle or all the way across the aqueduct then a selfie is a must. You can either take a selfie with the stunning landscape to your back or have a selfie with one of the canal boat or kayaks that trudge along the aqueduct beside you…….but it is not for the faint-hearted!
