Space for Everyone: Wrexham
Wrexham is the next stop on the UK Space Agency's Space for Everyone Tour! We’re landing on Queen’s Square near the Town Centre.
Join us to discover the important role of space in our everyday lives and dive into the vast array of space-related jobs in the UK space industry. The best part is the tour is completely free and there’s no need to book in advance.
Simply turn up within the opening hours and immerse yourself in the endless possibilities of space!
We will be located at Queen’s Square.
This is how you get there by Foot, Rail & Car.
From Town Centre, make sure you travel up Queens Street instead of Hope Street, which should be the northernmost pedestrian road from the center of town.
This will bring you straight out to Queens Square which is opposite Cafe Nero.
As you exit the station, turn left, using the walking path next to St.Mark’s Car Park. As you come out of St Marks Rd, you will find Regent Street.
Turn Right at this T junction, and continue straight. Continue with the General Instructions.
Turn right onto Regent Street and continue along this road. Continue with the General Instructions.
You should pass Primark. When you see Waterstones, make sure to carry on onto the pedestrian street rather than following the road round. This should be called Hope Street.
As you continue along Hope Street, there will be two directions to turn. Turn Left onto Queens Street.
At the end of this street is a Cafe Nero. Queens Square is directly opposite.
If you are driving, it is recommended that you use a GPS or Satnav app. Sat Nav reference is LL11 1AT.
The A5152 is the road that surrounds Wrexham so you will most likely be using that to gain access to Queens Square.
The nearest car park is Maes Parcio’r Llyfrgell | Library Car Park, but this fills up very quickly; we would recommend the Tŷ Pawb Multi Storey Car Park a short walk away. This is £3 for 3 hours and can be less for higher stories.
As you explore the tour, you will have the opportunity to engage in various hands-on activities. The tour aims to inspire curiosity and educate visitors about the wide range of opportunities available in space, from engineers and coders to space doctors, artists, and more.
Enjoy your visit to Space for Everyone: Wrexham!
