Denbigh City Guide

Set in the Vale of Clwyd in the northeast of Wales, Denbigh is a historic market town lying amid beautiful scenery to the east of Snowdonia. Denbigh in Welsh is ‘Dinbych’, which means ‘little fortress’, a fitting name for the town, which is dominated by a ruined hilltop castle that looms above the bustling main square.

A web of pretty streets lined with shops, food haunts, inns and interesting historic buildings, Denbigh is a great place to visit, with plenty to see and do. Apart from the town itself, a great mix of attractions awaits in the nearby countryside, from the peaks of Snowdonia to the beaches of the North Wales coast.

Sightseeing in Denbigh

History buffs will be in their element in Denbigh. Dating back 1,000 years, the town is studded with ancient and medieval buildings. You can stroll around the ruins and gateway of the 13th Century castle, and walk the remaining town walls, all amid wonderful views of the hills of the Clwydian Range.

Other must-sees include the remnants of Leicester’s Church, an unfinished 16th Century church, and the Burgess Gate, the main entrance to the town in medieval times. And if you want to relive the past further, you can visit the Library and Museum, a 16th Century building with absorbing displays charting Denbigh’s often turbulent history.

Shopping in Denbigh

Denbigh is great for retail therapy. Rather than the bland chain stores that dominate some towns, the centre is peppered with unusual independent shops and other retail gems selling everything from handcrafted Welsh products to vintage accessories, local arts, fashions and footwear. And when your shopping is done, you’ll find a choice of cafes, tearooms and restaurants to unwind and refuel in.

Denbigh has plenty to satisfy food lovers of all tastes and budgets. You’ll find a clutch of restaurants serving food made from fresh, local produce. Otherwise, there’s a variety of international fare on offer, from Italian kitchens to Indian restaurants, mostly around the High Street, Vale Street and Rhyl Road.

Bars and Nightlife in Denbigh

Whether you’re after a relaxing pint or lively night out in a stylish wine bar, you’ll find what you’re looking for in Denbigh.  Some date back to Elizabethan times and many ring with the sound of locals speaking their native Welsh, making them especially atmospheric. Also, several bars and alehouses offer regular live music to enliven your evening.
