Travelling around Prestatyn
Quaint, beautiful and charming – these are just a few words that you’d use to describe the seaside town of Prestatyn. Sitting high up in North East Wales, the area is part of Denbighshire and can be found on the cusp of the Irish Sea coast, a little to the east of Rhyl.
Due to it being so close to neighbouring Rhyl, you’ll be surrounded by exciting things to see and do. Accessing all this is made easier due to the convenient transport links. Arriva bus services operate to and from the area, allowing you to reach areas like Rhyl, Llandudno, Holywell and more destinations with ease.
With a history that stretches way back to prehistoric times, the discovery of a village in nearby Meliden suggests there was early human habitation in the area. Meanwhile, nearby Trelawnyd houses the largest Neolithic Mound in the country, known as The Gop.
You can even explore Roman times too. Just outside the town, there’s a Roman bathhouse, which is thought to have been part of a fort on the road between Chester and Caernarfon. However, much of ‘Roman Prestatyn’ has now been destroyed by years of house building and excavation.
