Llangollen is a small town on the River Dee in Denbighshire, north Wales. It is the first Welsh town on Thomas Telford's historic London to Holyhead road, today's A5, and several other main roads either meet in the town, or require travelling through it.

The town's proximity to the Welsh mountains and abundance of watersports on the river make it a popular tourist destination. Consequently traffic can get congested during the summer months. However, the A5 is now marked as a "Heritage route" by Transport Wales, with the expectation that HGV traffic for Holyhead (and hence Dublin and the rest of Ireland) will use the A483 to Chester, then the A55 North Wales Expressway.
