Tours and trails

Our rich history has shaped the architecture of the town and is all around you in the town square. Today 600-year-old buildings are still in use as banks, shops and civic buildings. Did you know that the first copies of the Welsh national anthem were printed in what is now the Siop Nain tea room and gift shop in Well Street?

Ruthin Arts Trail is a fun way to get to know the town. Run in conjunction with the Craft Centre the trail offers a truly unique way to learn about the town. Discover hidden spy holes and secret figures, crafted tree guards and benches. Read more ›

 

The designers of the Art Trail, Fred Baier and Lucy Strachan, have given visitors to the town an interactive experience that takes you through the town centre from many different perspectives.

The intention of the Art Trail is that visitors will be rewarded by chance sightings of the acrobatic figures and appreciate the allusions to myths memories and historic moments captured in the spy hole tableaux.

You can discover the 10 spy holes set into the town walls and spot the 22 figures hidden amongst the facades and roofs around the town. While searching for these figures there is every chance that you will notice how beautiful the town is, and how the architecture from many centuries sits harmoniously together.

The Arts Trail website has all the information you need to get started, including a downloadable Trail map.
