Removals to Europe, UK and Overseas Moving Service


Removals to the Welsh Borders

The Welsh Borders are hugely popular, with both beautiful views and access to major towns and cities in both Wales and England. If you are considering a move to the area and are looking for a relocation service, Hamiltons Removals are the people to contact. We can help you arrange your move to a number of towns and villages, including Buckley, Connah’s Quay, Flint, Hawarden, Holywell, Mold, Queensferry, Flintshire, Wrexham, Powys and Monmouthshire.

Moving to the Welsh Border

The attractive scenery, along with the giant, sky-scraping mountains is a draw for many people looking to relocate, with miles of unspoilt countryside here to enjoy. Often houses here are cheaper, so you can get much more for your money. A bonus of moving here is that the views are breath taking, with some of the most sought after houses having stunning mountain views.

Relaxed lifestyle

The countryside of the Welsh Border is an attractive prospect for city dwellers, with the leap from busy city life to tranquil country life often needed and relished. Schools in the area have very favourable reputations. And, as the region is known for its fresh and unpolluted air, you and your family can spend unlimited time outside without the need for additional worry.


The Welsh Borders can be an ideal place for commuters to live, with links through to major cities such as Chester, London, Cardiff and Manchester. Many trains and roads lead to these large cities, with airports such as Stanstead also being an achievable distance away. This is perfect for busy workers, who can reduce travel time to get more done during the day.

Border Towns and Cities


Flintshire borders the English county of Cheshire, and is considered to be part of the Welsh Marshes. Flintshire is a maritime county, with the Dee estuary marking its northern boundary; the coast here was developed by the industry to attract tourists. Flintshire has 72 primary schools and 12 secondary schools, so there is plenty of choice when it comes to sending your child to school.

The chief towns in Flintshire are Buckley, Connah’s Quay, Flint, Hawarden, Holywell, Mold, Queensferry and Shotton. Buckley has an annual regional celebration and march called the Buckley Jubilee, which is a well-known event to all the locals in the surrounding areas.  The locals march through the town with many of the local schools, and banners from each of the local faiths are carried. Connah’s Quay is the largest town in Flintshire, which can be found alongside the river Dee, near the English border. Here there is a population of around 23,000, making it a lively and interesting place to relocate to.


Wrexham also runs along the border of Cheshire, England, and is situated between the Welsh mountains and the lower Dee Valley. Wrexham is the largest town in North Wales, with a population of over 61,500 people. Wrexham is full of life and activity, with a number of attractions to be found within the town.  These include events such as the Wales Comic Con, which is the largest fan convention in Wales. This brings actors, artists, writers and sports personalities to the town each year to meet the fans.

Wrexham is also known as a market town, with two architecturally significant Victorian indoor markets, and also a newer indoor market. Kelloggs, Cadbury and Calypso all have manufacturing sites in Wrexham, and these organisations give tours on a regular basis.


Powys is the largest county in Wales by land area, built on mountainous land which makes north-south transport difficult. The vast majority of the population here lives in villages and small towns, such as Newton, Ystradgynlais, Brecon, and Welshpool. Powys is known for its low population density, which makes it a peaceful and tranquil place to settle. Powys is said to be one of the happiest places in the UK, with residents here having a very good quality of life.

Newton has a population of 12,783, making it the largest town in the county of Powys. This town is famous due to it being the birthplace of Robert Owen in 1771. Here you can visit the Robert Owen Museum, where you can learn about the life of the Welsh social reformer.

Raglan, Castle Ruin, Monmouthshire

Monmouthshire, in south east Wales, has a large population of just over 91,000. This county has many historical places of interest, including a vast amount of castles to visit. Among the most popular is Chepstow Castle, which is located on top of the cliffs in Chepstow, overlooking the River Wye.

Abergavenny is a market town in Monmouthshire, which was originally the site of a Roman Fort named Gobannium.  This town has the remains of a medieval stone castle, and is promoted as the “Gateway to Wales”. Here, a cattle market is held every Tuesday, and occasionally on Friday, where sheep, cull ewes, and fodder can be bought.
