Colwyn Bay lies on one of the most spectacular areas of coastline along North Wales.

Its bay provides a stunning welcome for travellers heading in from the English border as the A55 sweeps down to the sea at the Old Colwyn end.

The road provides a perfect view of the scenic bay on one side and the town itself, and its countryside hinterland, on the other.

However, the upgraded road has also enabled easy access to any of North Wales’ other beauty spots in recent years and consequently Colwyn has struggleed to maintain its once dominant popularity among holidaymakers.

These days it provides an ideal base from which to explore all of North Wales’ attractions – from Snowdonia to the south as well as the neighbouring towns of Llandudno, Rhyl and Conwy.

However, Colwyn Bay still has its own attraction – principally its beautiful location, scenic bay, its park and specific lesire pursuits.

Water sports enthusiasts love its bay to pursue their pastime and they provide added interest for tourists enjoying the sunshine on the beach.

In the hills above Colwyn Bay lies one of the area’s premier attractions, the Welsh Mountain Zoo.

The former borough of Colwyn Bay has traditionally encompased the village of Old Colwyn at the eastern end of the Bay and Rhos-on-Sea to the west. Local government reorganisation in 1974 saw the borough enlarged to include the neighbouring town of Abergele and many rural communities inland.

Colwyn itself was subsumed in more recent years and is now part of the County District of Conwy, which also covers Llandudno ad the historic town of Conwy.
