An Historical Town

Denbigh is a picturesque market town and one of the most historic towns in North Wales. Dinbych in Welsh means “little fortress” and the remains of the historic Denbigh Castle dominate the skyline of the town.

Our location in the strategically important Welsh borderland has meant some turbulent times for our townspeople in the past and we think this has helped to forge the Denbigh character – strong, lively, independent of spirit, but also open, friendly and welcoming. This, together with our blend of natural geographic gifts and rich legacy of historic buildings, makes Denbigh something of a ‘hidden gem’ for the visitor. Here you’ll find the warmest of welcomes and a generosity of spirit that makes every visitor feel right at home, and you’ll have an authentically Welsh experience.



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!
