Frequently Asked Questions - Tourism

What publicity brochures do the Tourism Department provide?

There are two main tourism brochures: North Wales Borderlands covering the wider geographic area and Wrexham Says Hello 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 tourism@wrexham.gov.uk.

You can request a hard copy or download one from the respective websites, or www.wrexham.gov.uk (for the Wrexham Says Hello brochure).

'What's On?'

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 tic@wrexham.gov.uk 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.

Are there any tourism statistics available?

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.
