Travelling around Rhyl
Rhyl is a seaside resort town on the North Wales Coast, close to the mouth of the river Clwyd. Ever since the Victorian age, it has been a particularly popular holiday destination for travellers from the north-west of England, as well as those journeying from other parts of Wales.
Regeneration in recent years has led to the redevelopment of the seafront and promenade areas, and further inland the town of Rhyl is home to a number of Grade II listed buildings. Although the chief appeal of a trip to Rhyl is the chance to experience a traditional Welsh seaside break, a journey inland will also bring you into contact with some of the most spectacular scenery in Wales.
Rhyl lies on the North Wales Coast line, providing quick and easy rail travel to other parts of North Wales, as well as destinations as far away as London. Arriva bus routes in the area can take you to Prestatyn, Llandudno and (on an open top bus) Talacre.
You can stroll along the promenade, take in the stunning views out to sea, wander across the wide sandy beach and then enjoy the traditional seaside food, which can be purchased anywhere along the seafront, including fish and chips, candy floss, rock and seafood, such as whelks and mussels.
If you prefer a more active trip then head along to the SeaQuarium Rhyl, an aquarium which boasts a jellyfish zone, a seahorse nursery, an outdoor sea lion cove and the chance to walk along a tunnel surrounded on all sides by spectacular sea life.
Stay a little longer and experience the nightlife of Rhyl in one of its many bars, pubs and clubs.
