If you are a keen walker – or even if you just like to go for short, leisurely strolls around beautiful parts of the United Kingdom – then the Llangollen Walking Weekend is the event for you. It is open to walkers and hikers of all ages and abilities, whether you want to go for a short wander or a longer trek.
There are plenty of different walks available to enjoy on this day of fun, with short, medium and long routes on offer. The sheer variety is astounding – you can go on a culinary tour of the area on a food and drink walk, you can get muddy and close to nature on a wilderness walk, you can learn about the town through the centuries on a history walk (with a Blue Badge guide), and two of the walks even feature a ride on the Llangollen Steam Railway!
You can also try a bit of Nordic walking or travel along sections of the Offa’s Dyke Path, as well as enjoying free Welsh beer and chocolate, plus an evening filled with Welsh folk music and local food and drink. Perfect!

Llangollen, the lovely little town and community in Denbighshire in North Wales, is a great place to visit for a day or two, or as a base to explore the wider area. You will find it on the banks of the beautiful River Dee, seated at the foot of the Berwyn mountain range.
The Spring Steam Gala is one of the biggest events in the Llangollen Railway calendar, and is a fantastic few days for steam train enthusiasts of all ages – or just about anybody with even a passing interest in vintage locomotives!
If you are a keen railway enthusiast, a lover of good real ale, or somewhere between the two, then one of the highlights of your calendar should be the Llangollen Railway Real Ale Train (if it isn’t already!).
