The Traditional Market Town of Mold

Park for just twenty pence - yes - 20p for up to three hours or fifty pence for all day.

No visit to the North Wales Borderlands is complete without time spent in Mold.

In the central streets small, 'proud to be independant' shops mingle with well known national stores. Even shopaholics need a break and the large number of very good cafes and eating places will satisfy the most demanding. Look out for some really great restaurants too.

It says 'Traditional Market Town' on the signs as approach the town and that is exactly what you get.

The town centre is busy with activity during the Wednesday and Saturday street markets which have been held since 1808. The livestock market is held adjacent to the town centre on Monday and Friday each week. On the first Saturday of each month Mold Farmers’ Market sells fresh local produce direct to customers from St. Mary`s Church Hall.

Broadcast across the U.K. in TV's Bargain Hunt, an auction takes place on most Wednesdays. So if you are looking for antiques, collectables or household items, make a date in your diary.

To complete the picture, Mold's indoor market continues the tradition but from modern premises in the central shopping precinct.

It's not all hustle and bustle in Mold. The well tended formal park is well worth a visit. Why not bring a picnic, the high street shops are only a few minutes away and can provide all you need for alfresco dining.

Varied and interesting architecture in and around Mold marks the town out as something special.

Lasting examples of Tudor and Stuart ornamentation and evidence of how the industrial revolution in the 18th and 19th Centuries contributed to the growth of the town. To protect Mold’s rich heritage there is now a conservation area where you will find modern shops and cafés nestled in and around the older style buildings that give the town its unique blend of traditional and contemporary.

The historic church of St. Mary’s sits proudly above the town. It was rebuilt by Margaret Beaufort in honour of her son Henry VII, the first Tudor King of England, and you can trace architecture from the 14th century through Elizabethan times to the restorations of the Victorians.

The floral entrance to Bailey Hill, the strategically strong site that overlooks the Alyn Valley. Today it is a public park where you can enjoy the fantastic views over the surrounding countryside.

The existing town of Mold was established as a stronghold in Norman times and the remains of the Norman ‘Motte and Bailey’ castle can still be seen at the top of the hill.


The tradespeople and residents of Mold look forward to welcoming you.
