About Llangollen

Llangollen is an ancient market town situated on the banks of the beautiful River Dee under the watchful gaze of Dinas Bran Castle.

It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in North Wales, thanks in part to the Victorians who started coming to enjoy the majestic landscapes and clean air.

Home to the International Musical Eisteddfod, the towns population of just over 3,000 rises tremendously during this now famous week in July.

The colour and pageantry created during the festival by the many thousands of overseas competitors to the festival make this an un-missable event.

History is everywhere, from the Iron Age and the original Dinas Bran Castle through to the Dark Ages and the legendary King Arthur. On past medieval times and the spectacular Valle Crucis Abbey and town bridge, to the more recent Victorian period.
