About

Goytre Wharf is located on the canal with over 200 years of industrial heritage to discover. The site is now developed for leisure within an area of outstanding natural beauty, but still retaining many of its historic features.

It can be an interesting place to visit for an hour or a day, or a part of a trip to the surrounding area with its World Heritage sites of Blaenavon Big Pit and the Ironworks Visitor Centre. You can even make the wharf your base by staying the historic cottage which originally housed the weighbridge mechanism and managers office. The cottage is adjacent to the Aqueduct carrying the Mon & Brec canal which you can go under to reach the canal tow path and National Cycle route.

There is an onsite cafe & Coffee bar with public toilets available during its opening hours. You can enjoy hot or cold drinks and food, or just bring a picnic and sit of the grass next top the lime kilns.

The wharf is home to ABC boat hire where you can start your boat holiday or short break or hire a boat or canoe by the hour or day. They also have a shop selling sweets, ice creams and souvenirs.
