Born from the vision of two German immigrants, this light and refreshing lager hold the distinction of being the oldest in the UK.

The Wrexham Miners Project
The Wrexham Miners Project stands as a unique museum with a history as compelling as the stories it tells. While the mining tradition is often associated with the Valleys of South Wales, the spirit of mining runs deep in the veins of all of Wales. This museum serves as a testament to that legacy and like numerous buildings and institutions across Wrexham, this remarkable establishment owes its existence to the dedication of the local community.
Founded in honour of those who lost their lives in the North Welsh mines, the building served as the Miner’s Rescue Station—an essential hub where miners acquired the skills to rescue colleagues injured in the aftermath of a collapse or, more harrowingly, an explosion.
Across the UK, 48% of major mining accidents occurred in Wales, and within the walls of the Wrexham Miner’s Project, a memorial pays tribute to the 234 individuals who lost their lives in the tragic 1934 Gresford Mining Disaster, which is discussed in a poignant episode of Season Two of “Welcome To Wrexham.”
During your visit, you’ll delve into the training of rescue teams and even have the opportunity to undergo some of the rigorous tests they faced. Perhaps, amidst the exhibits, you might even find yourself crossing paths with a celebrity or two. The Wrexham Miners Project not only preserves the memory of the mining heritage but also offers a unique and immersive experience, inviting you to walk in the footsteps of those who shaped this profound chapter of Welsh history.
Racecourse Ground and the Wrexham AFC Shop
As we pass by The Racecourse (or Cae Ras in Welsh), take a moment to appreciate the historical significance of this venue. It proudly holds the title of the oldest international soccer stadium in continual use. While it might not boast the same grandeur as larger, more modern international stadiums as Wembley, The Racecourse is a gem in its own right. Serving as the home to Wrexham AFC, the oldest soccer club in Wales, this stadium is undeniably the beating heart of Wrexham. Unfortunately access to the grounds and the stadium interior cannot be guaranteed due to match schedules, filming commitments, closed practices, and unforeseen circumstances. However, we’ll ensure there’s time for capturing memorable pictures outside the stadium. Your guide will regale you not only with tales of the club’s rich history but also paint a vivid picture of its promising future, especially with the recent ownership takeover by Rob McElhenny and Ryan Reynolds. Whilst here you will also have the chance to indulge your passion for Wrexham AFC at the Wrexham AFC Club Shop, where shopping becomes an experience in itself. Feel free to explore and pick up this season’s home and away shirts, showcasing your support for the club. For those seeking something more whimsical, consider grabbing a cuddly toy to bring home—a charming reminder of your visit and perhaps a cuddle companion while reflecting on the exciting developments brought forth by Rob and Ryan’s ownership. The club shop offers a diverse range of memorabilia, ensuring you can carry a piece of Wrexham AFC with you wherever you go.
Of course no tour would be complete without stopping at the famous Turf, for a pint and a bite to eat!
