If there’s just one thing you do during your stay, make sure you visit Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Pontcysyllte, meaning the bridge that connects, has 19 arches, each 45 foot wide and stands over the River Dee. The bridge dates back to 1795, and was made using local stone. Known as the stream in the sky, many choose to take a boat ride across Pontcysyllte, but walking is also possible. Be sure to bring your camera, as the views up there are truly spectacular.

Discover the life of the servants downstairs with a unique collection of their portraits whilst upstairs in the family’s quarters you’ll be able to admire the luxurious wallpaper and décor, fine paintings and furniture. Set within 1,200 acres of parkland there’s plenty to do, children can play in the Wolf’s Den, borrow some binoculars and see which birds you can spot or take a horse drawn carriage ride through the estate!
