Travelling around Connahs Quay
Resting peacefully in Flintshire, Connah’s Quay is the largest town in the area. Sitting within the Deeside conurbation of towns, on the River Dee, it lies close to the English Border.
Known as ‘The Quay’ to local people, you’ll find plenty of things to see here. From the beauty of the scenery to the wonders that resulted from the growth in industry, Connah’s Quay is a fascinating place.
Whether you’re looking to come or go, there are several public transport services. Arriva buses run services to and from Connah’s Quay, meaning you can visit places such as Mold, Chester and Holywell.
When it comes to things to see and do here, there’s one place that stands out from the rest. Wepre Woods is an ancient woodland in the town, where you’ll be able to immerse yourself in nature. You can spend hours wandering its many little trails, trying to spot wildlife and the various fauna and flora.
Within the woods, you’ll find the towering Ewloe Castle, which was built by Edward I in 1277, as well as the red rocks, and the marvellous towering waterfall. There’s also a playground, outdoor gym and football pitches to enjoy.
You can also take a little time out of your day to embark on a Quay River Tour. Choose from a two-hour trip upstream to Chester, or a shorter 30-minute trip around the bridges along the rivers. The Flintshire Bridge is the largest asymmetric cable-stayed bridge in Britain.
Other interesting sights include Connah’s Quay Power Station, a great example of 1950s industrial architecture, St David’s Church and St Marks Church, which is a Grade II listed building.
