WELCOME TO WREXHAM
WALES' SEVENTH CITY
Historic and vibrant Wrexham is just 18 miles from Ruthin, reachable via the stunning Horseshoe Pass, Denbighshire.
The city is also home to the world-famous Wrexham AFC, a club that boasts not only the world’s oldest international football stadium, but also celebrity owners. The area has witnessed a boom in popularity since the release of the Netflix documentary ‘Welcome to Wrexham’, a docu-series that follows the fascinating story of the purchase and stewardship of Wrexham AFC, by Hollywood A-Listers Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds. A rise up the league tables, and a huge growth in visitors and celebrities visiting the town, has resulted in Wrexham becoming one of the most talked about locations in the country.
However, Wrexham is not just all about football and Netflix. Wales’ seventh city has plenty to offer visitors, whether dropping in for a few hours, a few days, or longer. Culture, heritage, music, arts and science, as well as local food and drink, all have their part to play in what makes the area so diverse. The city even boasts a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
