The County Borough of Wrexham (Welsh: Bwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam) is a Unitary Authority centred on the town of Wrexham in Wales.


The county borough was formed on 1 April 1996 following major reorganisation of local government in Wales. Most of the area was previously part of the former district of Wrexham Maelor in the former county of Clwyd but several communities come from the former district of Glyndwr, also in the former county of Clwyd.

The area includes parts of the ancient counties of Denbighshire and Flintshire which were abolished in 1974.

The headquarters of the authority are in Guild Hall, Queens Square, Wrexham.
