Wrexham Things to Do

  • The General Market

    Wrexham has three indoor markets (something which is unusual in itself)The purpose-built General Market dates from 1879 and was originally called the butter market, selling (as one might guess) dairy goods..cheese, butter, milk and so on. During the Second World War rationing meant that a purely-dairy market was no longer viable and so it became a...

  • A little bit of what once was....

    The Horse & Jockey pub is on Wrexham's Hope Street, in the town centre. It's clearly a very old building, even if one ignores the thatched roof. It stands out amidst the modern frontages of this busy, pedestrianised shopping street.The building which now houses the pub almost certainly dates from the 1500s and was originally a 'hall house' (a house...

  • Ancient St Giles

    The rather lovely Medieval church of St Giles stands in Wrexham's town centre. It's external sandstone stonework is a bit green now...all that Welsh rain over the centuries!..and has suffered form erosion caused by both weather and atmospheric pollution, but it still has some impressive gargoyles.The main part of the existing church dates from the...

It is all housed in a spacious building. There is a cafe on site, and downstairs and exhibition area.When the weather was bad, we spent...

  • Erdigg Hall

    Just one mile outside of Wrexham, the building of Erddig began in 1684 - a grand new house for Joshua Edisbury. His extravagant plans and dwindling resources left him bankrupt and he left Erdigg and Wales. The house was then bought by John Meller, a wealthy barrister and bachelor, and remained in the family for the next 250 years.Philip Yorke, the...

Wrexham Restaurants

  • Dao Siam: Excellent authentic Thai food

    by MonkeyAl Written Oct 21, 2007

    Excellent authentic Thai food. As a person who has travelled throughout Thailand I would say this is about as authentic as you get in the North Wales and the North West of Britain

    Favorite Dish: Try any of the sea food dishes. Especially sea bass
