Wrexham's Architectural Wonders

Wrexham proudly boasts three of the '7 Wonders of Wales.' St Giles' Church, with its 16th-century tower, stands as an exquisite example of Gothic architecture and is considered one of the seven wonders. The tomb of Elihu Yale, founder of Yale University, adds historical significance to this Grade 1 listed marvel.

Gresford Bells and All Saints Church

Another wonder, the Gresford Bells, resonates in the 15th-century All Saints Church in Gresford, Wrexham. Notably, the church holds two sets of bells, a unique feature making it the only church in the world with such distinction. The enchanting peal of bells adds a musical charm to Tuesday evenings and Sundays.

Overton Village: Ancient Yew Trees and St. Mary the Virgin Church

In Overton village, witness the third wonder of Wales – the 21 ancient yew trees in the Churchyard of St Mary the Virgin Church. Dating back to early Medieval times, these trees contribute to the stunning beauty of the church and its surroundings.
