Denbigh (Welsh: Dinbych) was the county town of the traditional county of Denbighshire, Wales before 1888. The town lies on the River Clwyd and grew around the glove-making industry.

The majority of the population sought employment at the North Wales Hospital, which cared for mentally ill people. The institution was locally known as 'Denbigh Mental'. The hospital closed in the 1990s and the town went into decline.

Notable buildings in Denbigh include Denbigh Castle, the town walls begun in 1282 including the Burgess Gate, and Leicester's Church, an unfinished church begun in 1579, which was going to be a cathedral with the title of city to be transferred from neighbouring St Asaph. The project ran out of money and the grounds now lie derelict. Other attractions in the town include a library / museum.

Famous people associated with Denbigh include:

Denbigh hosted the National Eisteddfod in 1882, 1939 and 2001.
