Out & About
The area around Lion Quays is full of great places to discover and explore – from the rolling hills of Shropshire's countryside with its wonderful walks and views to fascinating historical towns and villages. Oswestry, one of the oldest settlements in the UK, with its traditional market and ancient hill fort. Chirk with its medieval castle...and Llangollen, home to a famous and fabulous international Eisteddfod, that’s just for starters!
Lion Quays lies on the edge of a Unesco World Heritage site, which covers 11 miles of the Llangollen Canal. Step out of our doors onto the canal path and you’re on a trail which leads to the world famous Pontcysyllte aqueduct and the atmospheric 1200 metre ‘darkie tunnel’. You can visit sights like those by car if you prefer of course – plus we’re just a 30 minute drive from the charming city of Chester, with its Roman walls and Amphitheatre, Cathedral, superb shops (including the quaint elevated ‘rows’) and the beautifully located Racecourse, on the banks of the river Dee.
If you’re looking for the ultimate in retail therapy Cheshire Oaks, the UKs largest designer shopping outlet is also just 30 minutes away. Whatever the time of year, and come rain or shine, there’s a huge variety of attractions to see and enjoy when you’re visiting Lion Quays!
