A couple of centuries ago Rhyl was an obscure fishing village on the North Wales coast. By the mid-1800s, thank to the coming of the railway, it was one of the most fashionable watering places in Britain. But you’ll also cross a very 21st century bridge and see an incredible multi-million pound waterpark attracting 350,000 visitors a year.
A lot has changed since our ancestors strolled down the promenade in top hats or crinolines. But some things will always be the same – the sea, the sand and a climate officially sunnier than the national average.
