Wrexham
Travel Guide

Wrexham which includes street scenes

Wrexhamis one of those idyllic locales that enjoys the best of both rural and urban life. As well as being the largest town in North Wales – with all the cultural, commercial and creative buzz one would expect from the borough’s administrative hub – it is surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, and a plethora of charmingly picturesque towns and villages.

Want to hit the shops?Then head to Wrexham’s eight-acre shopping centre, Eagles Meadow, where you’ll find all your favourite high street retailers. Or maybe you just want to get out and have some fun? Then why not go ten-pin bowling or catch the latest Hollywood blockbuster at the eight-screen cinema, or make for one of the many restaurants, pubs or clubs this buzzing town has to offer.

Shopping in WrexhamWith Eagles Meadow, Wrexham’s trendy shopping centre, a renowned centrepiece for the town, shopping is a real attraction for visitors. Opened in 2008, it has a distinctly modern feel to it, and features plenty of open spaces, decorative water features, and a genuine sense of continental caféculture alongside the wealth of top-brand retailers, cinema, and ten-pin bowling.

But it’s not all monolithic mall culture in Wrexham. The town’s long, rich history has decorated its many charming streets with boutiques that will delight lazy-day window shoppers and transfix treasure hunters alike.

Nature and Heritage in WrexhamWalesis a spectacular land of green valleys, mountain peaks and dramatic coastlines, and you are hard pressed to find a town or village any real distance from breathtaking scenes of natural beauty. However only Wrexham can boast all this plus an UNESCO World Heritage Site on its doorstep.

The Pontcysyllte Aquaduct, the world’s tallest navigable canal boat crossing when it was built in 1805, and still the tallest of its kind today, is a heritage masterpiece. This still-operational wonder of architectural engineering, which straddles an area of outstanding natural beauty, is in its own way emblematic of Wrexham’s dual personality of environment and imagination.

Sport in WrexhamWith Wrexham being such a lively town, it should come as no surprise to discover a rich seam of sporting endeavour and opportunity at every turn.

The Glyndŵr University Racecourse Stadium, is North Wales’s largest stadium, and fifth largest in the country. It also holds the honour of being the world’s longest serving international football venue and has played host to some of the game’s biggest names, including Arsenal, Middlesbrough, Tottenham, West Ham and FC Porto – all of whom have been sent home in defeat by this feisty town’s home team.

Rugby has also found a home in Wrexham, and there have been a number of Rugby League World Cup matches played at the venue.

Enjoy WrexhamWrexhamis so full of life, it’s hard to do more than scratch the surface here – as well as fantastic shopping and nightlife, epic heritage and landscapes and historic sporting venues, there are golf courses, Science festivals, a thriving arts and music scene, and so much more… just make sure you stay long enough to discover everything Wrexham has to offer.
