Chainbridge Hotel


The original chain bridge was constructed in 1814 and the suspension design was a feat of engineering. The bridge, hanging from a network of handmade chains, became the most famous and unique bridge out of a total of 35 that span the River Dee between Bala and the sea.

The Chainbridge is still a famous landmark and our eponymous hotel a popular venue for locals and travellers alike.

People have been coming to The Chainbridge for years, celebrating birthdays, weddings & christenings among many other happy, and some less happy, occasions.

Absolutely wonderful staff and the hotel must have the best setting in Wales. It's right on the path of the Llangollen History Trail, so great walks in either direction. Lovely dinner, good choice of drinks in the bar, just sad we couldn't stay longer. Can't wait to come back.
