Denbigh’s mighty 13th century castle sits above one of the largest and strongest set of town walls in Wales and was part of Edward I’s campaign. The fortress was so sturdy it survived attacks by Owain Glyndwr in 1400, the Earl of Pembroke during the Wars of the Roses, and Cromwell during the Civil War. Today it’s a bit easier to get in. Borrow the keys to the town walls from Denbigh Library and explore at your leisure, and enjoy views of the Clwydian Range while you’re at it. Other things to check out include Burgess Gate (the main entrance to the old town), Leicester’s Church, a unique triple-towered gatehouse with spectacular panoramic views, and a child friendly visitor centre as well as the bustling high street and Denbigh’s array of exciting activities throughout the year, from a monthly people’s market and a Plum Festival to a fireworks display from the castle walls.
