Rhyl is in a seaside town in Wales. Although once a very beautiful resort, it has become very run down in recent years, although there are attempts to revive the town. The Town could be called an enclave of England due to the sheer number of tourists and English people who live here.
A lavish appraisal of Rhyl can be Bill Bryson's 'Notes fom a Small Country', though some have suggested that he paints too flattering a picture.
Rhyl is a short distance from the A55, the main trunk road through North Wales. Driving time from Chester is about 30 minutes, from Manchester and Liverpool about 1 hour and from London about 4 hours.
Rhyl is served by the North Wales coastline. Services are regular and run towards Holyhead (or the Chester in the opposite direction). Travel time by train to London is a short three hours on a non-stop train (currently run by Virgin Trains).
Rhyl has a small harbour at it's Western side. There is a boatyard which allows boats to be docked.
