A CLASS of Year 4 and 5 pupils from St Anne’s Catholic Primary School in Wrexham recently enjoyed a 45-minute boat trip.
They cruised along the Llangollen Canal and crossed over the World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on board Anglo Welsh’s trip boat Little Star.
Teacher Rebecca Hughes said: “The children had a lovely time on Seren Fach (Little Star). The tour guide was fantastic – so enthusiastic and bubbly – and the children really engaged with her.
“We were given lots of information that was pitched just right for the age of the children. What an amazing experience to cross the aqueduct on such a lovely boat. Diolch yn fawr (thank you very much)!”
Emma Lovell, reservations manager for Anglo Welsh, said: “Our Little Star trip boat takes visitors along the Llangollen Canal and across the 38m high Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, to experience amazing views across the Dee Valley.
“In November and December we offer free boat trips to local schools. They are an excellent experience for children to learn outdoors in a different way and canals are great places to visit to learn about history and nature.
Little Star offers space for up to 48 passengers and over the winter, public trips are running at weekends only.
Adult tickets are priced at £10 each, children (aged under 16) are priced at £6. Family tickets for two adults and two children are priced at £25 each. Anglo Welsh offers a 10% discount on groups of 10 or more.
