Rhyl - A Social Study - Not Pretty

Rhyl is well located on the Welsh coastline - blessed with sandy beaches and mild weather (more sun than the rest of Wales due to being in the "rain shadow").

Rhyl has castles nearby, beautiful hillsides only five miles away, Welsh charm and the rural towns inland along the River Clwyd.

So what went wrong?

Rhyl is not nice. See more details ...

If in the Area - go to Prestatyn, 4 miles east and much prettier, quieter and unspoilt.

If you have any questions - ask me - I'm happy to advise :-)

    Not everywhere is paradise, but do you really want to avoid it? Why not experience everywhere you can at least once? If I ever get to Rhyl and it doesn't suit me, I'll avoid it the second time around.
