Year of Legends


2017 is the Year of Legends in Wales

We’re celebrating our epic past, present and future like never before with attractions, events and activities at a range of legendary locations.

Lonely Planet named North Wales one of its top 10 regions to visit in the entire world this year. In fact North East Wales shares a border with Shropshire and Cheshire. So, if you’re travelling from outside Wales, you’ll be in our wide open spaces, exploring our castles, eating our delicious food and feeling the buzz at our festivals before you know it.

For all the latest events, contact one of our Tourist Information Centres. They’ll help you book accommodation too – and tell you just about anything else you’d like to know.

12 Legendary Journeys

Everywhere you look in North East Wales, there are stories to be told. Some are true and some – well, they might be tall tales. Which is just another way of saying they have a different kind of truth.

They are part of the fabric of our landscape. Part of who we are.

But as you journey around North East Wales, you won’t just find these stories in our castles and churches, our winding rivers and open moorland, our theatres and art galleries. You’ll find them inside yourself.
