“If I live to see the seven wonders, I’ll make a path to the rainbows end, I’ll never live to match the beauty again, the rainbows end.” S. Stewart/S. Nicks.

Recognised as one of the most magnificent examples of ecclesiastical architecture throughout Wales: St. Giles’ Parish Church in Wrexham, is the Grade l listed building that’s known as one of the ‘Seven Wonders of Wales’. The Church's dramatically stunning tower, stands 135 ft tall: built in 1506, visitors can climb, and then marvel at the astonishing, panoramic views which stretch as far as the Berwyn Hills, the Mersey Estuary and the Cheshire Plains. Built to the glory of God and to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of His son, Jesus; generations of Wrexham people have celebrated, prayed, and found strength through difficulties within the walls of this glorious church, and continue to do so to this very day. St. Giles’ Church is regarded as one of the most illustrious medieval buildings still standing in Wales, and like a bejewelled treasure trove; the church contains rare, exquisite items, such as the stained-glass window credited to Burne-Jones, and many other masterpieces. Visitors are warmly greeted by lovely and helpful volunteers, who are highly knowledgeable, and more than happy to share their stories.
