An Ideal Location

If you choose to study at Wrexham Glynd┼Ár University then you will have the best of both worlds – city life and the great outdoors.

You'll find us conveniently situated on the Wales-England border, perfectly placed for easy access to the nearby cities of Chester, Liverpool and Manchester to the east, the rugged beauty of Snowdonia to the west and great beaches along the stunning coastline to the north.

North Wales has been named among the top places in the world to visit in 2017 according to Lonely Planet’s annual
Best in Travel list - it is the only UK destination to be featured in the rankings, which are compiled by a panel of the travel publisher’s writers and experts.

Wrexham itself is steeped in heritage, with beautiful scenery and numerous historical sites, as well as a bustling town centre with great shopping, a thriving culture and entertainment scene, and a buzzing night life. Not bad for a small market town.

What's more, it's a really easy place to get to. Located just off the A483, we have excellent links to all major road routes in the North West, as well as an extensive bus network across North Wales, North West England and the Midlands.

Wrexham also has great railway connections, with two main stations that run direct services to Chester, Holyhead and the North Wales Coast, Shrewsbury, Birmingham and Cardiff. You can also be in London in just over two and a half hours, Edinburgh in just over four, and Dublin in under six.
