Out, About and Things to Do - Easter and Half Term

This is a super lazy post from me today, I was sent a few press releases of events going on in Easter and the Half Term so I have just copied them over! 

School Holidays Family Day Out: Pontcysyllte World Heritage Site Canal Boat Tour
Date: Begins April 2011

Time: 45-minute trips run daily at 12pm, 1pm and 3pm

Admission: £4.50 adults, £3.50 for children. £14 for a family of 2 adults, 2 children

Where: Close to Wrexham, North Wales Borderlands

About: Take the whole family on this fun guided tour of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is conveniently nestled in the easily accessible North Wales Borderlands.

The Aqueduct is known fondly by locals as the ‘stream in the sky’. It stands at a whopping 126 feet high and is 1,007 feet long.

As you ride along the Aqueduct in your canal boat there’s nothing between you and the River Dee but fresh Welsh air. You’ll be able to take in the stunning scenery as local man Peter Jones talks you through its exciting history.

You’ll need a head for heights, but the view and the adrenalin rush will be well worth it!
