Wrexham is at the very heart of the UK, occupying an enviable position in the far North Eastern corner of Wales, bordering England.

The town is situated on the edge of the celebrated borderlands and within an easy drive of the coast, the rugged peaks of Snowdonia and some of England’s most attractive countryside.

Wrexham is conveniently located within a two hour drive of one third of the UK’s population and half of its manufacturing industries.

The ancient city of Chester is just 12 miles away and the cities of Liverpool and Manchester can both be reached within an hour. Wrexham’s central location also makes it an ideal base for those looking to access everything the North West, North Midlands and North Wales has to offer.


Reach Wrexham via the A483 link south to the A5 and M54 and North to the M53 and M56. These motorways in turn lead to the M62, the main East/West route and the M6, the main North/South route. Wrexham’s position on the periphery of the UK’s North Western manufacturing region means drive times to major commercial centres are surprisingly short. The city of Chester takes just 15 minutes by car.

By Rail

Wrexham has 2 railway stations with direct connections to the national rail network. Journeys to London via Crewe take 3 hours 11 minutes and from nearby Chester, the journey takes just 2 hours and 40 minutes.

By Air

Wrexham is close to two regional airports – Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport and Manchester International Airport.
