North Wales is a historically rich and picturesque region of Wales. Previously occupied by the Romans, Saxons and Normans and now home an estimated 700,000 people. Throughout the last century, the North Wales economy significantly relied upon the manufacturing industry, from the Steelwork factory in Wrexham to the Dinorwic slate quarry in Llanberis.
Over the last few decades, the North Wales economy has increasingly focused on the Tourism industry and during the last few years the region has boosted its efforts in attracting UK and international tourists and has very recently began receiving the recognition it truly deserves. In fact, in 2016, Lonely Planet placed North Wales fourth on the list of top places in the world to visit. With hundreds of castles, mountains and lakes and even a breathtaking coastline, it’s no surprise that this incredible region receives millions of visits from tourists each year.
One of the most popular towns in North Wales is the coastal town of Llandudno which, a few years ago, was voted the UK’s number one seaside resort by TripAdvisor. Home to the spectacular Great Orme and complimented with wonderful Victorian architecture and stunning sea-views, Llandudno attracts all types of visitors from heritage and wildlife lovers to families wanting a seaside staycation – making it an ideal advertising hub for local businesses looking to attract new customers.
Further along the coast of Llandudno is the cultural town of Colwyn Bay (Bae Colwyn) which has the oldest running cinema in the UK and a significantly improved beach waterfront which too pulls in substantial numbers of beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts from nearby cities such as Manchester and Liverpool.
Wrexham, the largest town in North Wales, is home to approximately 140,000 people, including 6,000 Glyndwr University Students. It’s also home to one of the oldest football teams in the world, Wrexham A.F.C who were very recently taken over by Hollywood superstar, Ryan Reynolds, establishing the historic market town further on the map. Wrexham is a loveable town with much to offer, from the Plassey Retail Village and Nant Mill Country Park to the 15th Century St Giles Parish Church.
When considering Out of Home advertising in North Wales, it’s difficult to avoid mentioning the Isle of Anglesey and the famous Snowdonia National Park, home to Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales and many other exciting adventure hotspots including Bounce Below, Zip World and Surf Snowdonia. Although Clear Channel have no advertisement sites on the island or in the popular mountainous region, the 11.7+ million annual tourists often either stay, travel through, and enjoy their time in Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and Wrexham – where Clear Channel has a network of bus stop advertising opportunities for local businesses and brands looking to connect with North Wales audiences.
