As the largest town in North Wales, you’d expect Wrexham to have plenty going on, and it does. With a wealth of attraction and sightseeing opportunities, there’s something for everyone.
Famous for its architecture, Wrexham has existed since pre-Roman times, and numerous valuable artefacts have been found in the area, many of which can be seen in the County Museum, and the nearby Bersham Ironworks centre offers tours of the ancient settlement.
Granted UNESCO World Heritage status, the impressive Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a must-see for its sheer magnificence and feat of civil engineering. In summer, the barges travelling across this vast waterway offer dining opportunities, while you look across at the beautifully peaceful and picturesque ruins of the thirteenth century Valle Crucis Abbey.
The retail fan is equally catered for, with Wrexham’s pedestrianised town centre allowing easy wandering from one big-name store to the next, stopping at the quaint independent boutiques in between. Considered something of a shopper’s paradise, there’s something to please every taste here.
