Digital Denbighshire Website Review and Infographic

I have never visited Denbighshire in North Wales and, to be completely honest, did not know much about this county until I was recently asked to review a new interactive website designed to provide a mobile experience for visitors. 

After spending some time on the Digital Denbighshire site, I discovered just how much this picturesque place has to offer ramblers, history buffs, photographers, nature lovers and general tourists looking to enjoy some leisure time surrounded by gorgeous scenery. 

The much-loved English author Beatrix Potter often visited Denbighshire and the garden and potting shed at Gwaenynog Hall inspired her to write ‘The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies’. This county boasts quaint market towns, historic buildings and ancient ruins set amid lush landscape and breathtaking mountains. 

A Digital Adventure Inspiring Creativity 

Digital Denbighshire, an initiative supported by the local county council and various other organisations, is not your average tourism site. Instead of merely presenting places in a matter-of-fact way, readers are given suggestions for activities to enjoy at various locations.

For example, if you click on the ‘natural world’ section, options include sketching nature like Beatrix Potter and photographing the Llangollen Canal. Once you make a choice, you can either print or click onto a PDF file providing instructions on how to do this. 

This is such a great idea for parents looking to stimulate their children’s interest in history and the natural environment in a fun way.
