Denbighshire is largely a rural county covering an area which runs from the North Wales coastal resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn down through the Vale of Clwyd, as far as Corwen and the popular tourist town of Llangollen. Along the way it takes in the historic towns of Rhuddlan, Denbigh and Ruthin, each with its own castle, and the cathedral city of St. Asaph. Visit our Explore Denbighshire page
to learn about the trails you can delve into.
Rhyl and Prestatyn on the North Wales coast are two towns with fabulous sandy beaches, where traditional seaside holidays get a modern makeover.
While these two towns offer the best of the modern seaside family holiday, each one has its own distinct character. Rhyl is a vibrant hub of activity, with events and attractions that keep the family amused all day and well into the night too. Prestatyn is a relaxed and safe seaside haven with stunning views and a variety of activities that take advantage of all the natural and historical wonders nearby.
