Welcome to Denbighshire – North East Wales

Denbighshire is the longest known inhabited part of Wales, the Pontnewydd (Bontnewydd-Llanelwy) Palaeolithic site has Neanderthal remains from 225,000 years ago. Its several castles include Denbigh, Rhuddlan, Ruthin, Castell Dinas Bran and Bodelwyddan. St Asaph, one of the smallest cities in Britain, has one of the smallest Anglican cathedrals.

Denbighshire has a length of coast to the north and hill ranges to the east (bordering on England), south and west. In the central part, the River Clwyd has created a broad fertile valley. It is primarily a rural county with little industry. Crops are grown in the lowland Vale of Clwyd and cattle and sheep reared in the uplands. The coast attracts to seaside towns such as Rhyl and Prestatyn  – summer tourists, and hikers frequent the Clwydian Range, which forms an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the upper Dee Valley. Llangollen hosts the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in each July.
