Trains to Prestatyn

One of North Wales’s best-loved holiday resorts, Prestatyn has bags of character and loads to do. Here’s how to get there by train.

One of a string of holiday resorts along the North Wales coastline, Prestatyn sits between Rhyl to the west and Talacre to the east. These resorts are bypassed by the main coast road, so they’re quieter than those further along the coast like Colwyn Bay and Abergele, and have maintained much of their original charm.

The town was put on the map in 1971, when Pontin’s opened its Prestatyn Sands holiday camp, bringing people from all over the country to enjoy its unique blend of entertainment and play. They must have done something right because it’s still very much alive and kicking to this day, although it would probably be unrecognisable to the visitors from back then. Holidaymakers can stay at the Pontin’s resort, or in one of the many hotels, B&Bs or static caravans along the seafront. In town, there’s a modern shopping centre, cafes, a cinema and all the stores you’ll need if you’re self-catering.
