Ruthin is situated in the Vale of Clwyd in the county of Denbighshire, North Wales.
It is approximately 27 miles from Chester, 18 miles from the North Wales coast, and approx. 15 miles from the Snowdonia National Park. Its location makes it ideal for touring North East Wales and the North Wales Borders.
For such a small town with a population of some 5000 Ruthin has more than its fair share of history. On arriving in Ruthin you will find that wherever you park your car all you need do to find St Peter's square, the town square, is walk up the hill.
The town is built on the top of a red sandstone hill and has delightful views of the Clwydian Hills from the town square.
