If you’re planning to visit Denbigh, consider getting a flight to Manchester Airport or Liverpool Airport — they’re both conveniently placed for a smooth onward journey.
Liverpool Airport is around 55 miles, and Manchester Airport roughly 62 miles from Denbigh, so you could be settling into town within a couple of hours of your flight landing.
Denbigh offers a huge choice to keep you busy, from historic monuments to eclectic shops, gourmet eateries and cosy pubs. The town is dominated by its crumbled 13th Century castle and boasts ruined town walls, a medieval stone gateway in the shape of the Burgess Gate, an interesting museum and other interesting nooks and crannies.
Alternatively, you may wish to head out of town to revel in the glorious Welsh countryside with its mountains, hills, quaint villages and beaches.
Many airlines serve Manchester Airport, operating flights from UK airports such as London Stansted and London Heathrow, as well as Southampton, Inverness, Exeter, Norwich and other hubs. International flights from mainland Europe and worldwide also land at Manchester, arriving from cities such as Dusseldorf, New York, Abu Dhabi and destinations around the Mediterranean.
If you’re planning to fly to Liverpool Airport, you can choose from UK and mainland Europe departure airports such as London Stansted, Belfast, Paris and Barcelona.
If you’re flying into Manchester Airport, you should factor in just over an hour’s road journey to Denbigh, via the M56 and A55. Alternatively, use the train links from the airport to Crewe, and from there, the rail connection to Rhyl, and then public buses on to Denbigh.
For flights landing at Liverpool, the easiest onward journey to Denbigh is by road, a trip that should take a little over an hour, again using the M56 and A55.
If you’re eager to enjoy the countryside around Denbigh, then organising car hire through Expedia will enable you to explore at your own pace and in complete freedom.
Denbigh has plenty for visitors right through the year, with everything from its medieval castle and town walls to its engaging museum, shops and restaurants.
In summer, the town shifts the pace up a little, particularly in June with the Denbigh Midsummer Festival. This week long celebration features everything from art exhibitions to music workshops, themed walks and food markets, all topped by the two day Denbigh Carnival, a whirl of events including a classic motor show, competitions and family attractions.
Whether you’re flying to or from Manchester or Liverpool Airport, you’ll find both are well equipped for your comfort and convenience for both before and after your flight. Both airports have a choice of shops for last minute purchases, plus restaurants, cafes and coffee shops. And if you’re working on the go, you’ll find WiFi and Internet access available landside and airside, as well as premium lounges, ATMs and rental car desks.
