There are two main tourism brochures: North Wales Borderlands covering the wider geographic area and Real Wrexham which is a dedicated visitor guide to the whole County Borough. Both have a wide distribution and advertising rates are available by contacting the Tourism Department on 01978 292010 or email@example.com.
You can request a hard copy or download one from the respective websites www.borderlands.co.uk (for the North Wales Borderlands brochure), or www.wrexham.gov.uk (for the Real Wrexham brochure). Real Wrexham is also available in Welsh.
In addition the Department also produces a comprehensive 'What's On?' booklet giving details of events being held within the County Borough. This is bilingual and produced quarterly. If you wish to include an event in the guide use the online form on this website or ring tourism on 01978 292010. To obtain a copy email firstname.lastname@example.org where you can also request to be added to the mailing list. The guide is also available at a wide selection of venues across the County Borough.
The Tourism Department at Wrexham County Borough Council co-ordinates an ongoing research programme for North Wales called STEAM. The project aims to evaluate the volume and value of tourism and gathers information on visitor numbers and occupancy rates for all tourism operators across North Wales. A summary of the results is available on the Council's Website through the Tourism pages.
Further information regarding tourism statistics are available upon request. Please call 01978 292010 or email email@example.com
