Arriving By Train

The lesser-used Wrexham Central located in the town centre provides a service running to the Wirral

The area around Wrexham General is currently being developed for retail and housing but for those desperate for a bite to eat there is a hot-dog stand close to the station serving fast and convenient food.  There is also usually similar fast-food outlets near the Turf pub and outside the visiting supporters' turnstiles.

The nearby Racecourse floodlights at the back of the station point the way for the first time visitor, with the nearby Turf pub and a petrol station on hand for refreshments close to the away supporters' turnstilles etc.

Walking in the opposite direction in to the town centre you will find an abundance of pubs, restaurants and food outlets suiting every budget.  National Rail Enquiries
