Welcome to Denbigh
At the heart of North Wales, overlooking the breath-taking Vale of Clwyd is the historic market town of Denbigh. It is the home of princes and earls, rebels and revolutionaries where layer upon layer of history have shaped the architecture of the town and the character of the people.
You can relax in one of our traditional pubs where people have been enjoying real food and conversation for over 500 years, or explore the Castle and walk the walls that have protected the town for nine centuries and take in the amazing views that have remained unspoiled throughout that time.
With its secret gardens and more listed buildings than any other town in Wales, you’re likely to stumble upon a hidden gem around every corner – but Denbigh is a working community living very much in the present with a lively art scene and a fine range of independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants and busy old town square where you can browse to your heart’s content or sit quietly and watch the world go by.
THE KEYS TO THE TOWN
To get the most from your visit to Denbigh make sure you experience the Town Walls. Borrow the key from the Library at the top of Vale Street, or from the Castle and explore to your heart’s content!
