Hopping on a train from Chester to Wrexham couldn’t be easier. With trains running every hour or so throughout the day, and the journey itself taking just under an hour, you can arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and relaxed.

The largest town in North Wales, Wrexham is famous for the quality of its natural water reserves, and enjoys a rich historical past that’s been lovingly preserved for all to appreciate. The architecture around the town offers an atmosphere of old-world charm, whilst just outside the city boundaries lie Roman remains and the Welsh hills beyond.

The impressively vast Pontcysyllte Aqueduct spans the River Dee, rising over 200ft, and during the summer months, you can dine out on the barges as they glide gracefully over the aqueduct, gazing across at the ruins of the thirteenth century Valle Crucis Abbey.

In recent years, Wrexham has worked hard to attract the discerning shopper, and it’s now considered something of a retail paradise, with the pedestrianised town centre allowing easy wandering from big-name stores to small independent boutique showcasing artisan pieces.
