Why North Wales
North wales is one of the most interesting and beautiful areas in Europe. It has plenty of places that are attached to some of the strangest tales and legends imaginable.
It has many record-holding places, including the highest peak in Wales, the longest station name, the smallest active church, the smallest house and the oldest living tree in Wales. Certified as 4-5,000 years old, this Yew tree is one of the oldest living things in the world. St Asaph Cathedral is the oldest in Wales and is also the smallest Cathedral in Great Britain!
There are more castles per square mile or kilometre than anywhere else in the world, of which 4 are World Heritage sites! With the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct and canal, they make up five of the six World Heritage sites within Wales.
North Wales is also geared for tourism and has many and varied activities and sites of interest to suit all tastes.
Situated where we are, places us in the best possible position to access the best of Wales and three excellent English cities just across the border. Rhyl is uniquely positioned right in the centre with direct routes East, South and West making the best combination of city visits and scenic excursions within a reasonable travelling time. It has a blue flag beach, beautiful little harbour, a delightful river and is situated on The Welsh Coastal Path.
