An historic city
St Asaph is the second-smallest city in Britain, behind its fellow Welsh cathedral city, St David's. Ideally located on the banks of the River Elwy, it is a stone's throw from both countryside and coast, and within easy travelling distance of major towns and cities.
St Asaph was granted city status as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012. Its origins date back to AD 560, when a community was founded by the Scottish saint Kentigern, who left his disciple Asaph in charge when he returned to Scotland. It has been an important ecclesiastical centre ever since.
The city is home to the smallest cathedral in Britain, and is host to the annual North Wales International Music Festival.
