We went to see the aquaduct and walked over it. The views were nice but it was much less dramatic than we were expecting. Pleasant enough walk along the canal & liked the sweet barge.
We parked the car behind the pub and walked the length of the canal walk across the aqueduct to Chirk and back again, not for the faint hearted who don't like heights, but a pint in the pub at the end of it makes it all worth it. Something worth doing at least once before you die.
We travelled from Ellesmere to Llangollen by narrow boat. The Chirk viaduct was one of the highlights of our trip. The scenery between Chirk and Llangollen was splendid.
If you have even a vague interest in architecture then this one is for you , what a jolly splendid feat . Park your car in the village and stroll to the aqueduct , a nice easy walk , and spend an hour or so just loosing yourself . What marvellous fun and free to boot .
Amazing build in an area of stunning scenery , Less popular than the near by Pontcysyllte aqueduct but just as interesting . Easy path to walk over the aqueduct and an interesting ( dark) tunnel .
We had just visited Chirk Castle and were on our way home when we saw the signs for the aqueduct. It was getting dark so we didn't stay for long but really enjoyed the walk and the views.
Unfortunately when we visited the aqueduct the weather was wet and misty so the views were a bit limited. However, we could still see quite a way.

Not the best weather but we really enjoyed our visit. Unique setting and views. The tunnel was fascinating... particularly liked the staligtites growing from the mortar between the bricks. Lucky to see boats going through the tunnel and over the aqueduct.
