The AONB are delighted to launch a new bus service in the Dee Valley to provide access to some of the key destinations in our beautiful and historic landscape.
The Dee Valley Picturesque Bus service is a circular route which will run every Saturday until October 2021, and will link Llangollen and the surrounding villages to popular local attractions including Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Wenffrwd Nature Reserve, Horseshoe Falls, Valle Crucis Abbey, Plas Newydd Historic House and the Horseshoe Pass.
It is hoped that this new service will enable people to visit these key locations without the need of a car and reduce the need for parking spaces, making it easier for those without their own vehicle to access these places, and helping to reduce congestion at some of the busiest sites in the Dee Valley. The service will also provide both visitors and local residents the opportunity to explore the wider area.
By working in partnership with Denbighshire County Council the AONB have been able to ensure that the service complements existing public transport provision. Connecting to bus timetables from Corwen and Wrexham makes the Picturesque Bus service the ideal option for planning walks in the area.
The time table is below or pick up a leaflet from the Tourist Information Centre at Llangollen.
