VISITING WREXHAM

From the global phenomenon that is our Pontcysyllte Aqueduct & Canal World Heritage Site through to our monthly street festivals - there is every reason to visit Wrexham County.

We don't just rely on our well known assets such as two National Trust properties (Erddig and Chirk Castle) - we also have tonnes of hidden gems like the breathtaking Ceiriog Valley and a historic city centre that combines modern day High St shopping with traditional markets and regular street festivals.

Add into that an array of amazing chefs cooking up a storm in eateries across the County, our micro-breweries creating sensational craft beers, and our first class hospitality - there's something for everyone here in Wrexham.
