What makes Llangollen one of the best UK towns to visit at Christmas?

Time out said Llangollen had something for everyone when it came to Christmas time. 

From the town's Christmas Festival to the trips you can take from Llangollen to Lapland (Carrog), it was "well worth a visit".

Time Out said: "Straddling the banks of the River Dee, Llangollen is a gorgeous Welsh gem well worth a winter visit – especially during its Christmas Festival, where the traditional Welsh Siôn Corn (Chimney Jack) dons his green outfit, rather than the famous red, when switching on the lights.

"The kids will also love the Santa Special: a two-hour journey from Llangollen to Lapland (Carrog) and back including a visit and a gift from Santa. 

"Over at Llangollen Wharf, adults can enjoy a four-hour luxury Christmas afternoon tea boat ride, or even join the party boat which includes a retro buffet and a DJ playing the biggest festive hits."
