New Pines Holiday Home Park is only a 5 minute drive away from the newly regenerated waterfront attractions of Rhyl, find out more in this post

Denbighshire Council have helped to regenerate the attractions and businesses offering a truly fantastic waterfront experience in Rhyl, all just a short distance from our own 5 star destination, New Pines Holiday Home Park. Our owners have a unique advantage of being able to explore all that’s on offer in their own time during our 10 ½ month season, as well as having unlimited access to the 5 star facilities on park. Why not book your park tour to visit our beautiful location and see the seafront regeneration too!

Read on below for more information about the changes to Rhyl’s picturesque waterfront.

vue cinema & sky tower

The Vue Cinema has been open in Rhyl for a number of years and is a popular pastime for all, from local residents to holiday home owners, showing all the latest blockbusters. However the cinema is still benefitting from Rhyl’s seafront regeneration, as the Sky Tower next to the cinema is currently undergoing refurbishment. The Tower will be an illuminated beacon, which will match the beautifully lit harbour bridge.

rhyl pavilion theatre

The ever popular Rhyl Pavilion Theatre has undergone an extensive external refurbishment, creating a strikingly modern structure along the landscape. The Council also created a new car park to help the flow of traffic during show nights.

Along with the external refurbishment, the creation of the new 1891 restaurant was added on. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and offers spectacular seaside views from the floor to ceiling windows, serving mouth-watering dishes for all. The name 1891 comes from the year the Rhyl Pavilion Theatre was first opened, honouring the history of this wonderful Theatre.

There are two other new restaurants along the waterfront serving family favourites. The Sunverge Restaurant is part of the Marston’s chain and is proving quite popular, with delicious meals and a children’s playground to enjoy in the sun. Further along the seafront, you can enjoy delicious meals at The Cookhouse, which is perfectly placed to explore the town centre after, or pop to the cinema across the road.

retail park

The seafront is also home to the new retail park development, which will be home to brand name chains, such as The Range and a variety of smaller, independent businesses.


The true jewel of Rhyl’s seafront regeneration is the new active play and waterpark centre, the SC2 has been a £15 million pound development to replace the old Sun Centre. Development started in 2017 and is nearing completion, the SC2 will be open in Spring 2019 and is expected to bring an extra 350,000 people to the Rhyl waterfront every year.

The SC2 is home to Wales’ first TAGactive play zone, and includes a multi-level play zone for sessions of a timed activity. Tickets include 2 TAG games, each game lasting 20 minutes, or opt for the Cyber Tower for a 5 minute vertical timed challenge.

The waterpark inside includes a breathtaking array of activities for all ages, with beach style paddling for the little ones and large flume rides and slides for all ages, including the daring Boomerang. SC2 also has a fabulous outdoor waterpark, the Splash Pad will help you make the most of the sunshine and is an ideal paddling pool for younger children, as well as the Paradise play helping to bring lots of fun with water spraying and squirting to the delight of all!
