Take the train and go for a walk in the beautiful Dee Valley.
Llangollen Railway is located in the beautiful Dee Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and the River Dee is classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its entire length. It’s a great area for walking and exploring with many walking groups arranging visits to the area.
Llangollen Railway is paralleled by two important way-signed routes to the north or south of the River Dee and both are promoted by Denbighshire County Council Countryside services.
Using Glyndyfrdwy as a mid-way access point, both walks can be split into more easily managed sections and both Carrog and Berwyn have similar options.
Details of both routes can be found online at:
Another great walking leaflet for the local area is:
More of these walks will be accessible from Llangollen Railway once our Corwen development opens but it also includes walks from Glyndyfrdwy, Carrog and Berwyn.
There are many walks which can be started at Berwyn Station. A basic local map has been produced to show directional routes but don’t forget to bring your OS Map to assist you if you would like to roam a little further.
Other walking literature may be available at Llangollen Tourist Information Centre and more walking routes will be included here soon.
One of our volunteers, Peter Dickinson, has put together two guide books, one is a Llangollen Railway Visitors Guide and the other has details of Country Walks from our Stations. Both these books are available to purchase from our Booking Office on Llangollen Station and are priced at £8.99 each.
