Wrexham Town

Wrexham is the largest town in North Wales and ranks as the fourth largest urban area in Wales after Cardiff, Swansea and Newport.  At the 2011 Census, Wrexham had a population of 61,603.

Traditionally an industrial town reliant upon the coal and steel industries, its economy has successfully diversified and attracted inward investment in recent decades.  Wrexham Industrial Estate is one of the largest in Europe, including major companies such as Kellogg’s, JCB, Cytec Solvay and Wockhardt.

Wrexham sits within sight of the magnificent Welsh uplands.  Situated on the English border adjacent to the lower Dee Valley, the town welcomes a diverse mix of people to its community, whilst being proud of its heritage as a Welsh mining town. Villages such as Llay, Gresford and Gwersyllt display the characteristics of close-knit mining communities.

Wrexham town centre has experienced significant redevelopment in recent years, highlighted by the impressive Eagles Meadow shopping centre.  As well as being the home of Wrexham AFC, cultural and sporting events regularly take place in and around the town centre.

Glyndwr University and Coleg Cambria are the standard bearers of an impressive educational sector and the Maelor Hospital works closely with them to improve local health care provision.

Wrexham is an ambitious town with plenty to see and do.  Visitors are encouraged to see for themselves how much the town has changed in recent years.
