Canoe across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
Wrexham is the largest town in North Wales, but nestled between the Welsh mountains and the Dee Valley, it's surrounded by the best of Welsh countryside, too. Country parks Alyn Waters and Ty Mawr are here, too.
The town is best known for the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a 19th-century aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee. You can hire a canal boat to travel across the 126-foot structure or, if you're really brave, paddle by canoe instead.
Visit the ancient walled city of Chester
Half an hour away, on the other side of the Welsh border, the ancient city of Chester is a must-visit. It's best known as the home of Chester Zoo, but there's plenty more to see.
The city walls are a reminder of Chester's Roman past, and you can retrace the steps of ancient soldiers on the wall walk. Gothic Chester Cathedral is also worth a trip: climb the tower for panoramic views across the city.
