Welcome to the 2014 Walking Program


It’s a pleasure to welcome you to the 10th Annual Prestatyn & Clwydian Range Walking Festival which continues to grow each year with visitors from all over the U.K. and overseas. A firmly established event providing free guided walks (except bus trips) for all ages and abilities ranging from all-day treks to easier strolls with some special themes.

Prestatyn & Meliden is proud of its status as a Walker are Welcome community which was the first in Wales and now attracts more and more visitors as they experience the joys of walking the coast and hills.
In 2013 the town was a Britain in Bloom Gold Medal Winner adding to its’ Wales in Bloom success.
Conveniently situated at the Northern end of the Clwydian Range & Dee Valley AONB, Prestatyn provides a wonderful base for walking enthusiasts offering good access to the 870 mile Wales Coast Path and Offa’s Dyke National Trail as well as many local way marked routes to suit all ages and levels of fitness.
The general festival theme this year is Coast, Castles & Culture with something to interest everyone. This years’ programme offers a wide variety of walks ranging from a 40 mile challenge on the Offa’s Dyke Path to a Roman re-enactment.
Other walks include Tern & Tide, Coastal Dunes, Historical Meliden, Spring Flora & Fauna, Nordic Walking, King Edward 1st Castles, Blue Bells & Vikings just to name a few.
On Friday evening there will be an illustrated talk at the Scala Cinema entitled Romans to Castles and on Saturday evening why not join us for an evening meal at the Eagle & Child Inn to mark our 10th Anniversary followed by a local sunset walk in Gwaenysgor.

The host venue at the Upper Church Hall in Prestatyn offers refreshments in a café style atmosphere so you can sit, relax and talk about your walking adventures.
