Wales 4 England 0
My North Wales Holiday Guide tells me that : “Sunny Rhyl claims to be one of the most attractive pleasure towns of Wales, not only because it seems highly favoured in the matter of sunny hours, but also because the whole atmosphere of the resort is one of sunny cheerfulness.”
Unfortunately Rhyl has not weathered the years since that was written at all well. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever visited a town with less sunny cheerfullness. Perhaps we caught them on a bad day but I fear probably not – it just didn’t feel like a nice place to be. From reading around there seems to be plenty of money being pumped into this peculiar area of North Wales – I just hope the money is well spent and makes some significant improvements, because boy do they need them.
Thankfully we spent a much more pleasant morning at Bodnant Garden, albeit somewhat fraudulently.
