The best way to arrive in Llangollen is by car. The A5 (from London to Hollyhead) runs through the town. There is also a bus service from Oswestry, about 15 miles away.
LLangollen is a small town and all the tourist attractions can be reached on foot. There is cheap car-parking in the town-centre, just of the main street.
The town has the usual selection of gift shops that you'd expect to find in Wales. There is/was an antiques centre.
There are a wide selection of hotels and restaurants. Apparently Pavaroti was so impressed by the food at the Chain Bridge Hotel, when he stayed there during an Eisteddfod, that he later asked for some local delicacies to be sent to him in Italy.
Most of the pubs are worth a visit. The Bridge End Hotel is popular with bikers and often hosts rock discos at weekends.
Carry on along the A5 - you'll end up going through the scenic horse-shoe pass, though avoid this if you don't like heights!
