    Talking to a friend last week who currently lives in Liverpool but is looking at moving to Wrexham and he asked me where is the nicest place to live here and it got me thinking. I live in the Little Acton area and love it, it suits me perfectly as it has everything I need. So which area’s should I be telling him to look at? He will have a pretty high budget for a house (around 250-300K) – if his property sells!

    With that level of budget your friend would be spoilt for choice.

    Would they prefer Town or Country?

    There are some lovely homes in legacy if he wants to be up in the hills, grsford and lavistar are very nice as well.

    Don’t think he’d be bothered really as long as there are decent amenities in the area.

    for town: i prefer rhosddu, acton, gresford village, little acton, borras, rhosnesni and erddig.

    for country: holt, isycoed, bowling bank to marchwiel.

    most places are great & safe compared to the rest of britain.

    if i was considering somewhere for schooling, i’d live close to ysgol morgan llwyd.

    Big H.

    1, Does he require a family home, or a single / couples place.
    2. Does he require, bus service, schools, swimming pools,

    it’s a big question, wrexham is a funny place to get around sometimes, because it’s a huge village made up of many small villages, in a way nothing is too far to get to, but each place can be considerd isolated (buses don’t run very late here, or very often depending how far out you get, it’s nothing like he would be used to in liverpool)

    I would agree that the public transport is not working especially to the satellite villages.

    The town itself (like the rest of the uk) is sadly not a walking or cycling town even though everything is in walking distance. Partly this is down to the weather and partly just down to the car culture. But it is a safe town when walking.

    This is a first time of agreement lol, There are bike lanes around a lot of the town now and quite a few points to lock a bike up in and around the town centre. I’ve tried being a cyclist here and have never really had a problem. but there are many hills! you do need to be fit :P

    If I came back to live in wrexham, the first thing i’d do would be set up a critical mass (and a shop where people could park their bikes inside securely and get changed for work or the cycle home, workshops on cycle maintenace, etc)
