Jump to: navigation, search

Prestatyn[1] is a town in Denbighshire, on the north coast of Wales. It is the most easterly of the holiday resorts on the north Wales coast, and so is convenient for day trips from the cities of Liverpool and Manchester in north-west England.

"Come To Sunny Prestatyn Laughed the girl on the poster, Kneeling up on the sand In tautened white satin. "
