Travelling around Wrexham
Wrexham is the largest town in North Wales, lying between the Welsh mountains and the lower Dee Valley, close to the English border. This charming market town is surrounded by wild, natural beauty, with acres of parks and woodland to enjoy.
Wrexham is home to the oldest medieval church in Wales, and, with a selection of museums, art galleries and some of the region’s best examples of Georgian and Edwardian architecture, there’s much to see and do. Just a few miles from the English border, Wrexham has excellent road and rail links. Arriva buses operate in the area, providing services to and from Chester, as well as local towns and villages, such as Minera and Mold.
A day out in Wrexham wouldn’t be complete without exploring some of its unique natural beauty. There are a number of parks within walking distance of the town centre, including Moss Valley Country Park, with bike trails, lakes and woodland, and Bellevue Park, with its shaded avenues, ornamental shrubs and authentic Edwardian bandstand.
For a shopping experience with a difference, be sure to visit Plassey Retail Village, a collection of individual shops and craft workshops surrounded by charming Edwardian buildings and breath-taking views of the Dee Valley.
Or, for a bit of local culture, there’s Erddig Hall, a glorious stately home just two miles from the town centre. This Restoration treasure, with its collection of 18th-century antiques and beautiful walled gardens, is a real feast for the eyes. In the evening, you can catch a show at the local theatre, or eat, drink and be merry at one of the town’s many bars and restaurants.
