In Rhyl you can stroll along the promenade or take a ride on our traditional beach donkeys. If you are feeling energetic you can get on your bike and experience part of National Cycle Route 5 on Rhyl Promenade. Whilst there, visit the Drift Park where there are five different zones to explore, visit the casino or go 10 pin bowling. Prepare yourself for the fright of your life in the Terror Tombs or head for the Botanical Gardens, an oasis of calm with gardens, tennis courts and a bowling green. Tiny tots can be entertained at the Children’s Playground. Brickfields Pond is a tranquil freshwater lake surrounded by grassland and woodland where you can enjoy the sculpture trail, fishing, or bird watching. Televised harness racing can be seen at Tir Prince Raceway and you can watch the football at Rhyl’s own league ground.

Prestatyn also offers a range of activities such as a championship golf course, tennis, cricket and football clubs, bowling and both indoor and outdoor swimming. Cycling is an ideal way of getting about town and seeing the countryside. There are two cycle routes starting in Prestatyn taking in the picturesque Dyserth Waterfall which has a pub, a café and toilets for visitors, Barkby Beach and Ffrith Beach - they both commence from the Prestatyn - Dyserth Way, and if you have come without a bike, don’t worry - there is a cycle hire shop on the High Street, Prestatyn.
