"Ruthin, Wales" Ruthin by Stephen-KarenConn
Ruthin Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 12 photos
Ruthin is a village of about 5,000 people in the Vale of Clwyd in the Northwast of Wales. Spelled "Rhuthun" in Welsh, "rudd" means red and "din" means city. This reflects the large amount of red sandstone upon which the town is built.
The hilltop town centre, St. Peters Square, has a rich architectural mix and lofty views of the surrounding countryside. This was the favorite stop of our ten day honeymoon in Great Britain. We loved being in love in Ruthin.
Ruthin is not near any larger town and is many kilometres from the nearest airport or train station, so a rental car was necessary to get here. The pastoral character of the area is demonstrated by this photo to the left, which was taken a few steps in front of the Ruthin Castle, and only a short walk from the town centre.
Most special of all was the Castle. Hundreds of years old, this authentic old castle has been modernized and is now a fine hotel. There are gardens, dungeons, walls, and passages to explore. Some guests report seeing a ghost, a lady in grey, but we missed her. Read more of Ruthin Castle in our accomodations tip.
