Things to do in Rhyl

Things to do in Rhyl

On the north east coast of Wales in Denbighshire is the seaside town of Rhyl which sits at the mouth of the River Clwyd.  It is a popular coastal resort and one of the biggest towns in North Wales which has seen a significant amount of investment and redevelopment in recent years.

Fun filled days abound for the whole family in Rhyl. With the Children’s Village on the Promenade, golden sands, amusements, boating pools, there’s something for everyone. 

Rhyl has a sandy 2 mile beach which can be up to ½ mile wide on a low tide.  Dogs are not allowed on the beach from 1st May until 30th September.  Further along located alongside the River Clwyd estuary is the Marine Lake. Previously an area of marshland, Marine Lake was transformed into a Victorian fun fair with waterslides and attractions in 1895 and is now the only saltwater lake in Wales. The island in the centre of Marine Lake and the surrounding area forms a haven for wildlife. There is a 1.5km / 1 mile walk around the perimeter of Marine Lake which offers the best way to witness and experience the resident wildlife.  The path is a tarmac surface and easily accessible by everyone. You can get to Marine Lake by bike from National Route 5, public transport or walking from Rhyl town centre.

Brickfield Pond, set in West Rhyl, is a local nature reserve popular for a range of recreational activities, including a 1km circular route of the pond. The site was once a clay pit, which was later filled in to create the Brickfield Pond we see today. It is a great place to feed the ducks and spot a variety of water birds including mallard, mute swan and moor hen. On occasions you may also see king fisher, grey heron and sand martin.

A couple of kilometres walk from the railway station you come to the marina, and Pont y Ddraig Harbour bridge (Dragon’s Bridge). It is a small pedestrian bridge which opens for boats entering and leaving the marina. It is unusual because it has a tall central mast, and a pulley system which draws the bridge platform on either side up to it when opening. Pont y Ddraig (Dragon's Bridge) provides the final link in 15 miles (24km) of traffic-free cycling across Conwy and Denbighshire.

Dyserth waterfall, where the Afon (river) Ffyddion falls some 70 feet on its way to the River Clwyd is a small village on the outskirts of Rhyl. Legend has it that medieval walls housed a giant water wheel, powered by Rhaeadr Dyserth, and several mills popped up along the river in years to follow.
