Description

When rail travel boomed during the early 1900s, it opened the gateway to North Wales for the bucket and spade brigade, showing them that 'happy times were here at last' on their visit to Prestatyn. Picture the scene in those uncluttered years for these early visitors to the town, refreshing, embracing sea air, clean lengthy sands, seaside Pierrots and a stroll up the town's popular hillside to experience the jaw-dropping panoramic view of Prestatyn, Rhyl, the Irish Sea and beyond. The vast number of visitors to the town were subsequently more than keen to settle in this alluring and slow pace of life coastal seaside resort, that still retains an unspoilt village-like charm with a strong sense of community and a heritage and history that would rival any town of its size. This is an affectionate and colourful portrait of one of the oldest seaside resorts in North Wales.
