Why choose Wales?
Wales (Cymru) , like England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, is one of the countries which make up the United Kingdom. Welsh, a Celtic language, is spoken by many of its people alongside English. Wales is a land of green hills and valleys, mountains and rushing rivers and beautiful seashores. Llangollen is a small, friendly town, just 12 km from the border with England. It is famous around the world for its International Musical Eisteddfod, a festival of music, song and dance which takes place every summer. The Welsh people are proud of their warm and hospitable reputation, which extends to all our participants. To discover more about Llangollen please visit the town website www.llangollen.org.uk
ectarc is around an hour away from both Liverpool and Manchester Airports. We therefore recommend getting a flight to one of these airports. We can book shared taxi transfers for groups of participants from Liverpool or Manchester to Llangollen. A taxi one-way costs £50. Shared between several participants, this is the most cost-effective way of getting here. Public transport is also a possibility. If you can only find a flight to a London airport, we will help you to plan your journey which takes around 4 hours by train.
