Travelling around Rhos-on-Sea

Bringing truth to the meaning that small is beautiful, Rhos-on-Sea is a charming seaside village filled with beauty. A seaside resort in Conwy County Borough, this stunning area sits happily between two larger seaside towns, Llandudno and Colwyn Bay.

Easily accessible thanks to its road links, Arriva buses run a number of services in and out of the area. This will allow you to enjoy this quaint resort, while also being able to reach larger areas, if needed.


Rhos on Sea

Close to Colwyn Bay, Rhos-on-Sea was established during the era of Roman Britain. Initially founded as a sub-kingdom of Gwynedd, it later became a cantref, which was a medieval Welsh land division.

Interestingly, it’s claimed that the area has a connection with the discovery of America. While Christopher Columbus is credited with discovering it in 1492, another version of history suggests Prince Madoc, a Welshman, set sail from Rhos-on-Sea and arrived at America 300 years earlier.
