Forget the Olympics being 100 days away. Here’s our guide on how to spend the next 100 days in Wrexham.
Wrexham and the surrounding area can more than match London for its cultural attractions and stunning scenery. With spectacular architecture to admire, plenty of wide-open space to enjoy and enough shopping to satisfy a Victoria Beckham sized thirst for spending, Wrexham is truly world-class when it comes to having a day out.
Here are numbers 1-5:
This 11-mile long, 126-ft high UNESCO World Heritage Site was built by Thomas Telford in 1805 after a decade of construction and was the tallest canal boat crossing in the world at the time. Being a World Heritage Site puts this magnificent structure on a par with the pyramids, the Acropolis and the Taj Mahal.
After a recent £2m refit, Wrexham Museum offers a fascinating insight into our heritage, and now includes a collection of medieval coins unearthed in 1926.
Pull up to the imposing iron gates and palisades before taking in the 700-yr old marcher fortress and beautifully landscaped gardens. The castle is also one of the few in the UK to boast a cellar you can visit.
Woodland walks, riverside trails, a nature reserve, an adventure playground and golf-course, Wrexham’s largest country park has everything the nature lover and their family needs for a perfect day out.
You get a real flavour of life above and below stairs over the last 250-years at this fantastic 18th Century country house. See family portraits by the servants, and furniture and wallpaper from times gone by.
Hope you enjoyed our guide to our wonderful and the surrounding areas. Next week, we'll have numbers 5-10, and 10-15.
