Llangollen is a small town in Denbighshire, north Wales, famous for the Llangollen International Eisteddfod, the Llangollen Canal (whose Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is nearby), and the Llangollen Railway. The River Dee passes through Llangollen. According to an anonymous rhyme, the bridge over the Dee is one of the Seven Wonders of Wales.

To the south of the town is Plas Newydd ("New Place"), where the Ladies of Llangollen (Sarah Ponsonby and Eleanor Butler) lived.

Above the town to the north is Castell Dinas Bran. Beyond this is the limestone escarpment known as the Eglwyseg Rocks. The outcrop continues north to the area known as Worlds End. The area nearest to the castle is known as the Panorama Walk, and a monument to local poet I.D. Hooson (he was from the nearby village of Rhosllanerchrugog) can be found there.

Llangollen hosted the National Eisteddfod in 1908.

In 2002, the Rainhill locomotive trials were restaged in Llangollen.

In 2002, as part of a publicity effort, many local businesses agreed to accept the euro currency during the week of the Eisteddfod, which attracts many European competitors. Three years later, there are still several establishments in Llangollen which continue to accept the Euro, but most have ceased to do so.
