Wrexham - the vibrant "capital" of North Wales!
Wrexham is the kind of small town that gets bad press for various reasons, and some of them have absolutely nothing to do with today's reality!
With a new University, new professional Rugby League team and with 2011 being Wrexham's Year of Culture, now more than ever is a great time to come and visit!
Not Quite Wrexham
Not quite Wrexhan but just on its outskirts is the house and gardens of Erddig Hall, now owned by the National Trust.
The range of outbuildings includes kitchen, laundry, bakehouse, stables, sawmill, smithy and joiner’s shop, while the beautiful state rooms display many original 18th- and 19th-century furniture and furnishings, including some exquisite Chinese wallpaper. The large walled garden has been restored to its 18th-century formal design and has a Victorian parterre and yew walk. It also contains the National Collection of Ivies.
