As we recently reported the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) that’s on Queens Square is to move to new and bigger premises on Chester Street early next year.
We’ve now got our hands on some artists impressions that have been produced and we’re very pleased to share them with you! We think they’re pretty cool and will make sure that visitors aren’t disappointed by what they find when they visit Wrexham:
A bright airy feel will welcome thousands of visitors each year and there’s the added bonus of a flexible space – shown with the tables and chairs in the impressions – that can be opened up in the evenings and weekends for events such as local food demos and local gin tastings 🙂
The larger premises will also allow the TIC to showcase more and more of the delicious local produce that’s currently available aswell as what it sells now which includes Wrexham Lager, Aber Falls Gin, Rosie’s Cider, Aballu Chocolate, Halen Mon salt, Penderyn Whiskey, Dylan’s Sauces, Mrs Picklepot’s Jams and Tweedmill rugs.
The new location is only a couple of minutes walk from where it is now and old and new visitors will benefit from a double fronted modern facility that caters for all visitors whether they’re looking for maps, tickets, what’s on in the area, a souvenir or travel advice and hotel accommodation. They’ll also be able to showcase more local produce than they currently have room for now!
“Flexible and modern TIC”
Cllr Terry Evans, Lead Member for Economic Development and Regeneration, said: “We have been looking for suitable, larger premises for the TIC for some time and moving to the now empty former Oriel shops makes perfect economic sense. Visitor numbers to Wrexham are definitely on the up and they expect to find a flexible and modern TIC that is able to accommodate all their specific requests.”
“In addition to the many events that the town centre hosts we have on our doorstep a World Heritage Site, two National Trust properties and of course the outstanding natural beauty of Chirk and the Ceiriog Valley which attract visitors from across the globe. There are also sites of historical and industrial interest across the town centre and the county borough and we must be ready to receive increased visitor numbers in the coming years.”
