Rhyl - Other Side of the Tracks tour
Many people visit Rhyl’s seafront and town centre every year, but the less well-known area south of the railway tracks features beautiful parks and some interesting buildings. Use your smartphone or tablet to follow our walking tour of the area to discover, among other things, Britain’s first theatre built for children, a wood carving which was reputedly part of King Henry VIII’s bed, and a park whose name refers either to a recently deceased king or to the new king, depending on which entrance you use!

St Asaph – The Words & Music Tour
The cathedral city of St Asaph has produced or attracted many writers and musicians – including poets, composers, translators, organists and a journalist whose reports from Africa were eagerly awaited in America and Britain. Follow our QR codes around the city to discover this artistic heritage. Along the way you’ll see the birthplace of the brothers who wrote the wartime hit Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit-Bag, the grave of a wandering polyglot who knew 15 languages, and learn how a writer and linguist connects St Asaph’s history to the ruins of Hiroshima. You can also listen to sound clips – for example, a flavour of the music of William Mathias, who is buried outside the cathedral. View a map of the tour.
