WHEN I was given the chance to attend a 'Welcome to Wrexham' tour, I jumped at the chance having loved the series and being an AFC supporter.

Ever since the Wrexham AFC Hollywood takeover by dynamic duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, Wrexham has been put on the map, gaining thousands of international fans and admirers. 

The Leader:

The tour is led by a passionate guide and local, Bryan Still, who lives and breathes the town, not to mention having a deep-rooted love for the football team.

Bryan's Travel has partnered up with Carden Park, a luxury countryside hotel in Cheshire just on the outskirts of Wrexham, to bring you an exclusive package. The tour can be booked separately or with an overnight stay at the relaxing resort. 

The 'Welcome to Wrexham' tour is completely tailored to you, the paying guest, meaning you can skip a location or spend a longer period of time at one. 

The Leader:

You will visit Wrexham Lager, one of the main sponsors of Wrexham AFC, visiting the shop and sampling the goods. Next, Bryan will take you to the club shop where you can purchase AFC items before enjoying a drink in the Turf pub where you might get the chance to bump into landlord Wayne Jones who is well-known in the Disney+ documentary.

Bryan will then take you through the streets of Wrexham before wandering through the historic and mesmerising Parish Church situated at the heart of the town.

You'll want to take a look inside the famous indoor markets where you'll find Wrexham and Welsh merchandise as well as Rob Clarke, a diehard fan who owns the 'Mad 4 Movies' shop once visited by Rob and Ryan themselves who signed several copies of the iconic 'Deadpool'.

There, Rob told me all about the club fighting to get out of administration back in 2004. Still fighting for survival in 2011, he set a target of £100,000 to bring the club back, with him donating £1,000 out of his own pocket. 

Next up, head down to Llangollen, an idyllic town situated next to the River Dee and Llangollen Canal featuring independent shops and boutiques.

You can then walk along the famous Pontcysyllte aqueduct, one of the seven wonders of Wales, and embrace the stunning views and countryside. Then enjoy lunch at the Cornmill or head to the Cock O'Barton in Malpas before checking into Carden Park.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and chatting to Bryan about his knowledge of Wrexham and the club was incredibly insightful (and that's coming from someone who was born and bred in Wrexham). 

Take your family and enjoy this special guided tour, tailored to your interests in Wrexham and the club, both into the area's vibrant past and exciting future.
