“Surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside, from Whixall Marina it takes just 30 minutes to reach the main line of the Llangollen Canal, one of the most popular on the network and home to the incredible World Heritage Status Pontcysyllte Aqueduct,” said Rob Lawrence, Anglo Welsh MD.

“From there boaters can choose from a fantastic range of cruising destinations - from short and easy lock-free cruising breaks perfect for beginners, to epic journeys around challenging cruising rings for more experienced boaters on longer breaks.”

As well as choice of six standard boats, Anglo Welsh will also operate four luxury canal boats from Whixall, including its new Constellation class ten-berth Gemini, the Constellation class boat for four people Aquila, boat for six Perseus and Andromeda that sleeps 12.
