Prestatyn station is delightfully located on the North Wales Coast Line and was opened in 1848. The railway changed the town's fortunes as Victorian city-dwellers clambered aboard the carriages for a slice of seaside relaxation - as a result, great prosperity came to the town, and it soon became a nationally recognised resort. The Beeching Report flagged the station for closure in the 1960s, but a local protest saved the day. The station underwent a facelift in 2011 with a new footbridge and lift installed as part of Network Rail's national Access for All programme. A curious sculpture created by Denis O'Connor sits at the front of the station; it looks a bit like a chimney, but don't spend too long puzzled - there is much to do in town. Horse lovers will be delighted to learn that the Bridlewood Riding Centre takes riders down on to the sands. And those wanting to while away an afternoon should head for the Scala Cinema and Arts Centre - this modern cultural hub hosts everything from blockbusters to pantomimes, all year round.
