Wrexham Town Centre
A market town, a University town, a shopping destination - we perhaps are special in that we mean something different to everyone - but essentially our heartbeat centres on the unique core of independent high street traders, markets and events that make Wrexham what it is.
Our monthly street festivals (started as a community venture by volunteers in 2015) draw families into town and our growing art community attracts national displays. Add into the mix a strong visitor offer such as Wrexham Museum and places such as Techniquest Glyndwr Science Discovery Centre and St Giles Parish Church (whose Tower is one of the Seven Wonders of Wales and the resting place of Elihu Yale) - then you'll start to see why Wrexham attracts so many tourists.
Food is important to us here in town and we have everything from quirky tearooms and coffee shops (Emz Cakes, King Street Coffee, Bank Street Coffee & Lot 11), great places for lunch (The Bank Wine Bar & La Baguette) and brilliant restaurants such as the Lemon Tree and the Fat Boar on Yorke Street!
We have two indoor markets, each with their own lovable characteristics and a Monday outdoor market too. Add to this Ty Pawb - a new £4.5m market, gallery and theatre which opened in Spring 2018!
