Wrexham is a large town in north-east Wales on the English border, characterised by a mix of Georgian-Victorian industrial architecture and rural Welsh beauty. It is the location of Wrexham Glyndŵr University.
Wrexham’s most famous attraction is the Parish Church of St. Giles, perhaps the most significant mediaeval church in Wales. Its graveyard houses the tomb of Elihu Yale (benefactor of Yale University, USA) – a replica exists at the Yale University campus and makes a brief appearance in Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Near to the town is Errdig Hall, a grand and historic Georgian manor house set in beautiful grounds and countryside. The hall hosts traditional markets and an annual cider festival.
A short journey away from Wrexham is the UNESCO world heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Llangollen Canal. Built by Thomas Telford, it’s the highest canal aqueduct ever built. The ‘stream in the sky’ is still in use today and offers stunning views of the Vale of Llangollen.
The surrounding countryside is full of natural beauty, including the Welsh mountains, beaches, rivers, and waterfalls. There are plenty of outdoor activities to do here, including hiking and mountain-biking.
The town also hosts Wales’ Comic-Con (the town is the home of famous graphic novelist Neil Edwards), the Focus Wales music festival, monthly Street Carnivals, cosy pubs and many trendy cafés, restaurants and shops.
Wrexham enjoys its sport, too. The local football team, Wrexham AFC, claims to be the third oldest club in the world – they play at the Racecourse Stadium (located right next to the university campus) along with the North Wales Crusaders rugby league team.
Wrexham is also a short journey away from major cities like Chester, Liverpool and Manchester.
Named after the last Welsh Prince of Wales, Owain Glyndŵr, Wrexham is the location for Wrexham Glyndŵr University. This public research university offers many postgraduate courses across a broad range of subject areas, with a focus on teaching practical, contemporary and industry-linked study and research. Its campus is located just a five-minute walk from the town centre.
Wrexham has one of the largest industrial estates in Europe, hosting around 300 businesses and employing roughly 7,000 people. Some of the major companies based here include Kellogg’s, JCB, JPDS Creative, Thomson Reuters, and Calypso Soft Drinks.
The town is also a commercial centre for pharmaceutical, biomedical and new media companies.
