About Llangollen

Welcome to the festival capital of Wales, Llangollen, the town which claims to have more hours of sunshine than Cornwall and less rain than the Lake District. This is the town where Wales says Boro da, to the World, for in the Royal Pavilion and the grounds that surround it is held annually the International Music Eisteddfod, which welcomes musical talent from all over the world.

The Royal Pavilion is also home to the annual spectacular Hot Air Balloon Festival, the gardening show, a food festival, and a monthly antiques and collectables fair.

The river Dee, which has its source high in Snowdonia, flows through Bala Lake, before tumbling though Llangollen, flowing on to Chester and the open sea. It is one of the great British salmon rivers and attracts white water rafting and canoeing events. The Llangollen Canal also flows regally through the town and crosses the Pontcysllte Aqueduct which is 1,000 feet long and carries the canal and tow path 126feet above the river Dee. This masterpiece of engineering was built 200 years ago by Thomas Telford who took 10 years to construct what is now, along with the canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Throughout the holiday season, which seems almost continuous in Llangollen, holidaymakers cross the aqueduct in their thousands, taking the horse drawn narrow boat up to the source of the canal, near the Horseshoe Falls in Snowdonia and back to the point where the canal merges into the canal system.

Chopped by Beeching's axe, which left many towns without a railway, the Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway was reborn in September 1975. The seven-and-a-half-miles of track now runs between the river Dee and the Berwyn Mountains terminating at the lovely tiny station of Carrog. Thomas the Tank Engine makes an appearance on the line annually and the Santa Special in December is a fun day out for children.

The countryside surrounding Llangollen is steeped in myth and legend. To the north of the town is Caer Drewyn, one of the most mysterious hill forts in the UK. Even its name is linked with Celtic myth, as the town of Gwynn ap Nudd, the lord of the underworld. There is a cave system beneath the hill fort.

Dinas Bran Castle rears itself proudly above Langollen and is a legendary hiding place for the holy grail. Arthurian legend abounds here with stories of the Fisher King and Arthur's Well.

But to change the subject completely - have you ever eaten an oggie? An oggie is a huge savoury pasty produced exclusively in the environs of Llangollen. An oggie is so large that it could support a walker on a stiff all day walk in the mountains. The origin of the pasty and its name are lost in the mists of Celtic myth.
