Tourism signage to promote Vale of Clwyd

Work to install brown tourist signage on the A55 promoting the Vale of Clwyd will take place next year.

The bilingual signs will be installed in advance of Junctions 27/27a for westbound traffic and in advance of Junction 27 for eastbound traffic in late February/early March 2022.

The signs will include Denbigh Castle, Rhuddlan Castle and St Asaph Cathedral all under the heading ‘Vale of Clwyd’.

Additional brown signage will be also be erected in Denbigh, Rhuddlan and St Asaph to direct traffic to the respective attractions.

The signs are being jointly funded by Denbighshire County Council, the City of St Asaph Council, Denbigh Town Council, Rhuddlan Town Council, CADW and St Asaph Cathedral.

Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire County Council, said: “These new signs will help showcase three of our fantastic attractions here in Denbighshire and will encourage more visitors to come and explore our beautiful county.

“This is part of our wider work to encourage tourism in the area which will help Denbighshire businesses and protect and create jobs for our residents.

“The installation of the signs will enhance the work undertaken by the Council’s Tourism Team to promote the county as an all-year-round destination in-keeping with a sustainable approach that will grow tourism for the good of Denbighshire.”
