Tourist attractions

Denbigh Castle

Denbigh Castle and Denbigh’s town walls are a set of fortifications built to control the lordship of Denbigh after the conquest of Wales by King Edward I in 1282. Just a five minute drive into Denbigh will find you at the bottom of the steep walk up to the Castle.

Ruthin Gaol

A fascinating local tourist site, Ruthin Gaol is a Pentonville style prison just a ten minute drive from Pentre Mawr. Ruthin Gaol ceased to be a prison in 1916. The gaol has since been used as offices, the county archives, a town library and even a munitions factory. In 2004 the Gaol was extensively renovated and reopened as a museum. It has recently been the background of a number of TV dramas and films.
