Denbighshire Town Trails updated and new audio trail being piloted in Rhyl

Denbighshire County Council’s Tourism Team has been updating their suite of Town Trails which aim to inspire visitors and local people to explore towns in Denbighshire.

Recently the Ruthin and Llangollen editions have been updated to highlight recent changes to the towns including highlighting the new community hub in the old courthouse and the new nature reserve in Wenffrwd, Llangollen.

The Corwen edition is the next Town Trail to be updated to help promote the new railway platform for the Corwen Station and the great efforts of the volunteers in the Corwen Museum.

In addition to the Town Trails online, the tourism team has also produced an audio walk in Rhyl which aims to attract a wider audience, encouraging pride in the town, sustainability and to promote wellbeing by encouraging people to walk.

Tony from Rhyl’s Tourist Information Centre is the main narrator on the trail and will be accompanied with other guest speakers. The audio trail contains information about Rhyl’s history and is available for people to listen either whilst walking, at home or anywhere else.

Councillor Win Mullen James, Cabinet Lead Member for Local Development and Planning said: “The Town Trails are a great way to explore the fantastic towns in our County as they have been carefully organised to show off the best areas and provide interesting information to visitors and local people.”

“We are so lucky to live in an area which provides rich history and picturesque scenery and this is a great way to encourage people to get out and enjoy the fresh air.”

“I am looking forward to people experiencing the new audio feature being piloted in Rhyl as I think this new modern addition will attract a wider audience of people to the trails”

The Audio walk is available via the and promoted on the town trail boards. If successful, the Council is hoping to replicate the same audio trail for other Denbighshire towns in the future.
