Denbighshire Heritage service manage and maintain 3 historic sites throughout the county; Ruthin Gaol, Nantclwyd y Dre and Plas Newydd, Llangollen.

Ruthin Gaol is the only purpose-built Pentonville style prison open to the public as a heritage attraction. People can spend time exploring its nooks and crannies and learn about life in the Victorian prison system.

Nantclwyd y Dre was started in 1435 and has been added to, updated and upgraded throughout the centuries. Nantclwyd y Dre has been beautifully restored to demonstrate the changing fashions and the lives of its residents.

Plas Newydd was home to Lady Eleanor Butler and Miss Sarah Ponsonby who captured the imagination of Regency society. They received a stream of visitors to the unpretentious little cottage which, over the years, they transformed into a Gothic fantasy of projecting stained glass and elaborately carved oak.
