As one of the most popular seaside towns in North Wales, Rhyl has a reputation for being one of the best places to be for entertainment and activities in the region and rightly so.

Rhyl is a very popular holiday resort on the North Coast, by the mouth of the river Clwyd. It is famous as “Sunny Rhyl” and its title is apt as it has a lot of sunny days a year. The town can be reached from Chester by train in 40 minutes and from London in 4 hours. Apart from its sunshine, Rhyl is famous for its glorious beaches and brilliant pier fun.


Rhyl is easily located on a map and is part of a “belt” of towns along the North Wales coast. Travelling through Abergele, Pensarn or Towyn will lead you to Rhyl as most roads from any of those locations can lead you this charming seaside town.

What is there to do?

There’s much to get excited about in Rhyl, including:

Rhyl Pavilion Theatre
Bodelwyddan Castle & Park

The definite place to be for all your days and nights of entertainment is the Rhyl Pavilion Theatre: a historic and wildly popular venue that continues to bring in the big names. Each year, it pulls in thousands of visitors who are eager to see a whole variety of talent and star turns.
