The Best Things
  • The road out of Wrexham - unfortunately it is very busy as people try to escape the shit hole!
  • B&M, Discount UK, Home Bargains and the 99p Store
  • Being able to live in a nice big detached house in a nice area because I work hard and don't claim benefits!!
  • Agree with the last comment. The Chester side of Wrexham is fantastic (borras, acton, gresford) other sides are bad (brymbo, brynteg) - vile!
  • Aslong as you live on the Acton/Borras side of Wrexham you'll have a happy life - live in Ponciau/Rhos/Penycae/Ruabon however and you will live a horrible life - they are dumps of places with scivvy people everywhere :-)
  • spring lodge, drugs and that theres loads of muppets to terrorise
  • I truly believe the best thing about Wrexham is the culturally diverse and intelligent residents of this fine area.
  • Wrexahm FC

  • are there any best things about wrexham? oh yeah, the bus stop. i love getting as far away from the shithole as possible!!!!!!!
  • The best things are that Wrexham does provide us with a medium sized variety of shops. Boots, M&S, TK Maxx, T J Hughes, BHS. All good British names there. It also features several lesser known places, which don't always stay open due to the financial climate in Wrexham. You can't complain about the parking either, there is plenty.
  • the road to england
  • my roots are here.
  • people r down 2 earth loadza gud shops countryside around an about gud 4 walks erddig hall - NT property easy 2 get 2 chester, cheshire oaks outlet village, liverpool etc etc via bypass
  • I moved to wrexham about 12 years ago, and although the people who have posted comments here are often negative, I like it here, the locals are friendly, you do have to make an effort to get to know people, and life's what you make it, if you've got a chip on your shoulder people can see it, and maybe that's why certain people have found it hard here! wrexham people will help you, and alright there are dodgy individualls, but that's true wherever you go.
  • The best things are The Roundhouse every Friday where it is horny girls night where anything goes or comes off, Esclusham Bowling Clun in Rhostyllen where they sell lager for 2 pint, Wrexham Football Club which I love going to watch, The River Dee in Chester where loads of people go and strip off and jump into the river in the summer. Ty Mawr Country Farm in summer is awesome at the bottom where it gets packed full of people swimming in the River.

  • The Police who don't give a toss about you smoking weed in the band stand 300 metres away from the police station. Also wrexham has feirce competion on booze prices to keep them nice and low so that you can drink away any memories of how utterly unpleasant the place really is.

  • The Border with England is only 7 miles away
  • Courses at NEWI and that's about it, wide range of shops (although Chester and many other places are much better)and friendly shop service.
  • Wrexham has no best things it is a dump it always has been and always will be, face facts Wrexham will never become a city It is a dump, how can a place that is so untidy and where all the people have no moral values or standards expect to become a city. The council dont treat everyone fair, they ignore what people want, and only help out fellow councillars and there friends. After reading through knowere I have noticed that quite a few people have moaned about Brynteg Council estate, well we know that knowhere has been in the leader so why have the the council not thought " mmmm theres something wrong in that area" I will tell you why because they are pig ignorant thats why. If Wrexham ever becomes a city I will be most surprised I just hope they give the city status to a more deserving town.
