North Wales Borderlands
The North Wales Borderlands is a place where two countries meet.
It takes no time at all to get here, but you'll soon notice a big difference. Take a look at our landscape. Diverse doesn't come close. Countryside doesn't get much greener, or more pleasant. Heather-clad Clwydian hills. The Ceiriog's valley floors. Fast flowing, trout-filled rivers, like the River Dee, the best view of which is from Poncysyllte Aqueduct - a terrifying 126 feet up. And there are views over nine counties from Chirk Castle, the only one of Edward I's Welsh castles still lived in today.
Six of the 'Seven Wonders of Wales' are right here. Including Pistyll Rhaeadr, the tallest waterfall in Wales. We've other wonders, too. Every year, around 5,000 competitors from all over the world flock to Llangollen's famous international music festival. And that's not the only thing we're famous for. We're widely acknowledged as having some of the best rambling routes in Wales. Even the grounds at Erddig have 13 miles of footpaths. And we're fast becoming known as one of the best mountain biking venues in the UK. Not so long ago we were voted 'Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year'. Golfers have been discovering us ever since.
