For generations of people in the North West of England and Wales, Rhyl is synonymous with British seaside holidays – sticks of rock, sandy beaches, fish and chips and a walk along the prom before heading back to the B&B. It’s fair to say it did lose some of its shine around the turn of the millennium, but it’s since had a complete makeover and some impressive investment. Rhyl is now firmly back on the destination list again, especially for families and day-trippers.
Thanks to expansion both ways, Rhyl and neighbouring Prestatyn, another dearly remembered resort, have met in the middle along the seafront. They now market themselves together almost as a single destination – two for the price of one, if you like. Whether you’re visiting on a sunny day to dip your toes in the fresh Irish Sea or are staying for a bit longer to experience the towns have to offer, there’s no better way to get to Rhyl than by train. The station is right in the heart of town, so you can have sand between your toes a few minutes after hopping off the train.
