Whether you arrive in Rhyl from the east or the west, the train will have spent a substantial proportion of the journey running alongside the Irish Sea, giving you an idea of what has been drawing visitors to the resort town for over a century and a half. Trains to Rhyl travel on the North Wales Coast Line, and it was the coming of the railway in 1840 that turned Rhyl into a popular holiday destination, especially for folks from the northwest of England. Visitors today emerge from the Victorian station buildings into the heart of town, just half a mile from the beach, Tourist Information Centre and Seaquarium. The 10-minute walk along either Queen Street or High Street will take you through the town centre, with its great range of shops, restaurants and pubs, and bring you to a seafront lined with good old-fashioned amusement arcades, souvenir shops and guesthouses.
