Located in North East Wales and bordering Cheshire, Clwyd is a popular visitor destination. The sandy beaches and arcades of Rhyl attract many holidaymakers each year whilst the west of the county with its links into Snowdonia National Park is more rural. The historic town of Conwy is home to the smallest house in Britain, and beautiful medieval walls which are really well preserved.
At Llangollen the Canal with its boats is very popular, and the town is best known for its Eisteddfod held each year and featuring the best of Welsh and international voices. Take the Llangollen Steam Railway on a panoramic trip over the Horseshoes Pass and along the Dee Valley. The town of Prestatyn is a popular place for visitors with its beaches and location at the northern end of the Offa’s Dyke Path.
Prestatyn also has great golfing and bowling facilities for visitors. Nearby the hills of the Clwydian Range make excellent walking terrain with some breathtaking scenery across the Irish Sea.
For one of the smallest ancient cathedrals around visit St Asaph, and for historic castles the towns of Denbigh and Rhuddlan are ideal places to explore. Both towns have excellent local shops with markets which are ideal for stocking up on a picnic and beautifully made local crafts. At Bodelwyddn the marble church is popular with visitors and the nearby Bodrhyddan Hall a picturesque stately home for a day out.
There are many excellent hotels in the area as well as camping sites and the area varies from the excitement of a popular seaside resort to the peace and serenity of the Welsh hills and tiny isolated villages.
Visiting North Wales is an experience in itself where history is wrapped up with culture and some of the most beautiful parts of Britain.
