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.

Get in

By Train

Prestatyn is on the Chester to Holyhead line, operated by Arriva Trains Wales[2].

By Road

Prestatyn is on the A548 Chester to Llanrwst road. It is also just 10 minutes drive from the A55 Expressway which runs the length of the North Wales coastline.

Get around

North Hoyle Wind Farm. You will see wind farms wherever you go in Wales but North Hoyle is different. This is the first major offshore wind farm in UK waters, and is located around 5 miles out to sea from Prestatyn.

Long-Distance Walking

Prestatyn is at the northern end of the 177 mile Offas Dyke Path national trail, which runs the length of the Wales/England border to Chepstow, following an 8th century defensive earthwork. Other trails starting and/or finishing in the town are the North Wales Path, Clwydian Way and Dee Way.

Beaches
