Trains to Colwyn Bay

If you do like to be beside the seaside, then Colwyn Bay station is spot on. Arriving by train to Colwyn Bay brings you right onto the promenade, with views out across wide sweeping beaches and the Irish Sea. And the journey to get there’s not bad either, as the North Wales Main Line hugs the coastline for long stretches of its route between Crewe and Holyhead. Colwyn Bay station first opened in 1849 as part of the network which brought huge numbers of holidaymakers to this whole stretch of coast during Victorian times. Tourism is still the main draw for visitors, and there’s plenty to see within easy reach. As well as the beach, of course, the town centre is a few minutes’ walk from the station. There are also buses every ten minutes to Rhos-on-Sea just along the promenade with its tiny 6th-century St Trillo chapel, and Penrhyn Bay around the headland.
