Denbighshire County Council
Yr Hen Garchar
46 Clwyd Street
The county of Denbighshire is in the beautiful North Wales Borderlands. It stretches from the coastal resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn in the north, through the Vale of Clwyd, over the panoramic Horseshoe Pass into the picturesque Dee Valley. The bustling town of Llangollen is home to the annual International Music Eisteddfod and on the edge of the recently designated World Heritage site of Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Llangollen canal.
The Clwydian Range designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1985 runs south from Prestatyn for 35 km.
The little town of Corwen is splendidly situated for walking.
The county is popular with day visitors and short break takers because of its accessibility. The coast provides value for money family holidays, and the wealth of heritage and culture makes Denbighshire a most attractive destination.
The coastal strip (Rhyl, Prestatyn and the immediate hinterland) is promoted as North Wales Coastal Resorts East, under the brand of Rhyl & Prestatyn. Rural Denbighshire (the Vale of Clwyd, Ruthin, St Asaph, Denbigh, Corwen, Llangollen, and the Dee Valley) are in the North Wales Borderlands, along with our neighbouring counties of Wrexham and Flintshire.
Denbighshire is also included in several tourism marketing campaigns undertaken by Tourism Partnership North Wales and VisitWales.
