Cruise ships could dock in Llangollen

* Cruise ships like this one could soon be docking at Llangollen Wharf.

In recent years Llangollen has benefitted from visitors from a number of cruise ships docking in Liverpool.   

Passengers are offered a day trip to North Wales that includes a visit to Llangollen but that unfortunately limits their time here and what they can see and experience. 

Under current investigation is a proposal that would bring the cruise ships over night from Liverpool around the Wirral and up the Dee, arriving around dawn for mooring at Dee Mill Wharf.

Spokesperson, David Davies, said: "This will enable passengers to spend a whole day in town with the opportunity to take a train ride, a trip on the horse drawn boat, partake of some lunch in one of our many cafes, restaurants or hotels and enjoy a local shopping experience.

"Passengers would return to their ship in time for a night time return sailing such that the cruise can then resume their programme on schedule.

"This would be a tremendous boost to tourism and trade in the town and a memorable  additional experience for all the cruise passengers, truly putting Llangollen on the world map."
