Things to do - Wrexham

Two miles south of Wrexham, Erddig a fascinating 18th century country house offers not only the house, but also the working range of outbuildings that supported the house. These well constructed outbuildings includes as well as the kitchen, a bakery, laundry for the house and the stables, joiners shop, sawmill and smithy for the estate. And outside the traditional walled garden has been restored to its 18th-century formal design, complete with a Victorian parterre and yew walk. And beyond the walled garden is parkland with woodland walks. In the last few years Wrexham has been transformed into a shoppers paradise whilst still retaining the charm of the older streets, arcades and markets - The Monday market is the largest in North Wales, less able people are well catered for with much of the Wrexham Town Centre being pedestrianised.

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built over two hundred years ago to ferry raw materials and finished products in and out of the Cefn Mawr area, this is a wondrous example of canal making. The arches reach a height of 200ft as they span the river Dee and you can walk or ride in a canal boat along its entire length. In the summer months you can travel over the canal as you dine on a canal boat.
