In what has recently been referred to as the ” Independent Quarter ” of the town you will find a huge variety of small shops, and market stalls.

From the quaint alley of Bank Street, down Central Arcade, the markets, along Henblas Street, Chester Street  and on to Charles Street and Yorke Street, there is something for everyone.

From fresh fruit and vegetables, the aroma of independent coffee shops, local butchers with produce from the Welsh Hills, lots of cafes for a traditional “Welsh” breakfast, delightful lunches and mouth watering afternoon teas you won’t go hungry in this part of the town.

Where many towns have lost their Victorian markets Wrexham is proud of it’s heritage with and the  General and Butchers Markets are still very much loved parts of the town.

From cobblers, to jewellers, florists, art galleries, beauty salons, tailors, opticians, vets, the “Independent Quarter” is a great way to spend some time browsing whats on offer.

Feeling a bit nostalgic  -pop along to the South Arcade to see the recently restored Hippodrome light – we bet that can tell some stories.

Not forgetting last year WCBC invested a significant sum to completely refurbish the toilets in Henblas Street – safe clean toilets and baby change facilities in the heart of the town.

For a more detailed look of what’s on offer.
