With its long sweep of golden sand beach, the seaside resort of Rhyl has been enticing holidaymakers for generations. However, the town’s currently undergoing a multi-million-pound makeover, with new attractions opening like the contemporary Pont y Ddraig bridge, part of a 15-mile traffic-free cycle path.
Just opposite the bridge, lies Marine Lake, a sanctuary for wildlife and the perfect spot to enjoy a family walk or some crabbing. On summer weekends, be sure to hop on the cute miniature steam railway that circles the lakeshore.
For underwater adventures, visit Seaquarium, where you’ll come face-to-face with sharks, clownfish and seahorses. The star attraction is the seals, however, who jump, splash and play in special shows.
The woodlands, orchards and gardens at nearby Bodelwyddan Castle are overflowing with wildlife too! Stroll through the beautiful grounds and discover a tricky maze, an adventure playground and an atmospheric replica of World War 1 trenches.
