The Valley of the Dee Driver-Guided Day Trip

A world class crossing by water! 
Explore North East Wales on this day trip, into the valley of the Dee and the borderlands. Visit the cultural and attractive town of Llangollen, host to the International Eisteddfod (a renowned Welsh festival).

Nearby are also the atmospheric ruins of Vale Crucis Abbey and the hilltop castle of Dinas Bran – the City of the Crow.
