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.
