Garden City Guide

Garden City is located within the Sealand district of Flintshire in Wales. Despite being called a city it is, in reality, more like a village, having first been developed as housing for the workers in the nearby Shotton Steel Works. In common with many such housing developments across the UK, dwellings which were initially built to provide good quality but basic accommodation has, over the years, grown to become historically significant.


Whilst Garden City itself is only small and doesn’t boast many tourist or visitor attractions it can rightfully claim as its own, the appeal to anyone wishing to stay there lies in the fact that it is ideally located for exploring  the wider area around the border between England and Wales. The position of Sealand on the Wirral peninsula, with easily accessible road links in both directions, means that there are many towns and cities within easy driving distance of Garden City, including some of the most popular seaside resorts in North Wales.  Whether you’re looking for seaside fun, shopping opportunities or a historical exploration, Garden City is the perfect base to start out from.


The historic city of Chester is just 5.5 miles away by car and offers a host of experiences for visitors of all ages. Chester has been around in some form for over 2000 years, having first been a Roman Settlement on the banks of the River Dee. It now has four main roads still built along the original Roman routes and, at 2 miles long, the most complete medieval city walls in Britain. Strolling along the walls allows visitors to explore the Roman gardens and amphitheatre, as well as the remains of Chester Castle and boutique designer shops based in original medieval buildings. Whether they wish to shop, enjoy a gourmet meal or take a cruise down the river, Chester offers more than enough for a packed day out for visitors of all ages.


Take the A548 out of Garden City and into Wales and you’re soon driving along the coast road, taking in views of the sea to one side and the Welsh hills and mountains to the other. Before too long, you’ll be reaching some of the UK’s favourite holiday spots.

After 24 miles you’ll reach Prestatyn, home to award winning beaches and rolling sand dunes. From here you could turn inward and explore the beautiful Welsh scenery as you head into Snowdonia National Park, or explore Prestatyn itself, where the sedate pace of life encourages relaxation and contemplation.

Just four miles further, via road or a bracing stroll along the beach, and you’ll reach Rhyl, a much more boisterous proposition. Attractions in this seaside resort include the Suncentre fun pool, the 80 metre high Skytower and the aquarium packed Sea Life Centre. From riding a donkey along the beach to taking a boat trip into the harbour, Rhyl is especially suited to families with children who need entertaining.

Garden City is truly a gateway to some of the finest attractions of Wales and North West England. Within quick and easy traveling distance of Liverpool, Manchester, Chester Zoo and racecourse and the beaches and castles along the Welsh coast, it represents a convenient and affordable base for a spot of exploration.
