Llangollen and district by red London bus

Starting on Easter Weekend, vintage bus tours will take guests to the Horseshoe Pass and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

A vehicle hire company will be giving residents the chance to see Denbighshire from a different perspective this Easter - via a vintage bus.

The Routemaster 4 Hire company, based in Wrexham, has announced it will be introducing two new sightseeing tours in Llangollen over Easter Weekend with more to follow soon after.

They have confirmed that the first tour will take guests to the summit of The Horseshoe Pass where they will see stunning views of the Clwydian Range as they ride 1,368ft along the A542 to the Ponderosa Cafe - located on the highest point.

As the buses drive out of Llangollen, passengers can take a moment to take in the spectacular views towards the Llantysilio Mountain range and Marilyn Cyrn-y-Brain.

The Horseshoe Pass tours will depart Parade Street in Llangollen daily at 11:45am and 14:45pm.

The second tour takes guests on a scenic drive from Llangollen to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal 126ft over the River Dee.

Built by Thomas Telford and opened in 1805, the 18-arched stone and cast iron structure is the longest aqueduct in Great Britain and the highest canal aqueduct in the world.

The Aqueduct Tour will depart Parade Street in Llangollen daily at 10:30am, 13:30pm and 15:30pm.

You can pre-book tickets by calling 01978 799909 or online at A limited number of tickets will also be available on the day, so you can just turn up and hop-on.

Tours will be running everyday over the Easter Weekend (April 19-22). More running dates will be announced soon.
