The town of Rhuddlan sits in the county of Denbighshire, North Wales. It lies on the banks of the River Clwyd to the east of Abergele, north of St Asaph and to the south of Rhyl. Rhuddlan is renowned for both its Edwardian Castle and the Church of St Mary, both of which stand on the banks of the River Clwyd. Rhuddlan Castle is one of the “Iron Ring of Castles” built by the English King Edward 1 to suppress the Welsh and never fails to impress.
From the west bank of the River Clwyd there are fine views of the castle, the river, and the old church of St Mary's. Moreover, from the west bank it is just a short walk across the bridge and up the hill into the town. At the top of the hill you have the choice of visiting St Mary's Church on your left or bearing right to visit Rhuddlan Castle. ....
