Erddig, Wrexham

4.6
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Wrexham
Capture the splendor of early-18th-century living at Erddig, one of England’s finest stately homes. Set on 485 hectares (1,200 acres) of country gardens, the house offers a thorough look at the functioning of an 18th-century estate. Tour the upstairs rooms to admire the lavish antique furnishings before heading downstairs to see the servants' quarters and work spaces. Walk or take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the gardens to visit the many outbuildings that line the property. Park for free on site and bring a picnic to enjoy while sitting in the walled garden. Put Erddig on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Wrexham trip maker tool .

  • There is plenty to do here, the house itself is unique and interesting. Usual NT facilities, coffee shop and restaurant. The woodcarving looks good, but not been there while he is working. Wolf's den play area is great for kids. Loads of parkland to explore as well as formal gardens.
  • Lovely place to visit. Interesting history and beautiful surroundings. Would recommend a visit and for National Trust members it's free. Activities during Autumn around Harvest time and there's even a bookshop and cafe.
  • Great surprise going to Erddig, having always been in the same family all the contents of the rooms are original. This family kept everything, there is so much to see in every room. The gardens have been lovingly restored.
  • I'm a little biased being this year's artist in residence here, but I've never heard anything bad about Erddig. It's a beautiful historical house with plenty to do for all ages. The Wolf's Den natural play area is awesome fun for the children, look out for the amazing sculptures of the wolves!
  • This is a great place to visit and to take kids! The wolf's den is a brilliant place for kids to try out all the things there are to do! The grounds are lovely to walk around and they have lots of different entertainments at various times, plus the lovely shop and restaurants, and there is plenty of parking spaces too!!
