Llangollen Lift bus service is back

The Llangollen Lift is back this year by popular demand.  

The free minibus service will be taking walkers and sightseers to some of the most stunning areas around Llangollen, including Castell Dinas Brân, the Panorama drive and the Ponderosa.  

The Lift is a fantastic way of accessing the beautiful countryside in the AONB, and gives great opportunities for leaving the car behind and enjoying linear walks from the hills back into town.  

Llangollen Lift runs at weekends until the end of September, and will also run on Mondays in August.

The service run three times a day – the 10 am and 1.30 pm minibus runs anticlockwise and are good for walks starting from the Panorama area.

The 11.30 service runs clockwise, and provides quick access to the Horseshoe Falls at the start of the World Heritage Site, where an easy 2 mile stroll along the canal will bring you back into Llangollen.

Funding has been provided by the Walking with Offa project, and the service follows the line of the National Trail along the Panorama.  

It can provide a useful lift for walkers staying in Llangollen back onto the route.

The minibus leaves Llangollen from the bus stop on Parade Street outside the Llangollen Museum, and also runs 3 times a day (11am, 1 pm and 2.30 pm) up to Plas Newydd where visitors can enjoy the house and gardens of the Ladies of Llangollen – as well as the café.

Timetables can be picked up from the Tourist Information and various outlets in Llangollen, and is also available online at http://www.clwydianrangeanddeevalleyaonb.org.uk/llangollen-lift.
