Hi there,

Does anyone on this forum know, if it is possible to get either a bus or train from Rhyl to Chester on a Sunday ?
As after the Airshow on the Sunday, I would like to stay in a Holiday Inn Hotel in Chester.
But may book another hotel in Rhyl or near to Rhyl, if I can't get public transport back to Chester. Any
info would be appreciated.

There's one train an hour, takes about 40 minutes. Do an enquiry on National Rail or Trainline and you'll see the times.

Just so you're aware, the Holiday Inn in Chester isn't, its four or five miles out of the City, so you'd need a cab. The Holiday Inn Express on the other hand is on the race course in the City Centre more or less. Just a heads up.

Hope that helps.

Many thanks Wrexham Mackam for the info. Yes sorry I made a mistake, I did mean the Holiday Inn Express in Chester not
the Holiday Inn. One train an hour is fine from Rhyl to Chester for me, I presume you do mean on a Sunday ? Eddie

Yes, on a Sunday Eddie. As I say, if you pop onto the Trainline website no doubt you'll get train times, prices etc. Or National Rail.

Personally, after doing the first couple of events by train, I drive to Rhyl. Southport on the other hand, train every time.

Can I just advise you, if you are planning on getting a train from Rhyl to Chester on a Sunday, that Sunday (regardless of the time of year) is the day that any train line maintenance tends to be carried out. So if your getting a train to Chester make sure you get an early one, as the trains can/ will be cancelled (replaced by coach) without any warning to you.

Eddie,

You can get an Arriva bus from Chester to Rhyl, you would get the Arriva bus 11 from Chester Bus Exchange stand 14* to Holywell and then the 11M from Holywell to Rhyl.

*Stand's may change

Am I the only one to find the line up posted above a little (okay, a lot) underwhelming?

Certainly lacking in the "Wow" factor, but I suppose if you're holidaying up in North Wales and the weather is good then not a bad way to while away an afternoon! :smile:

Groan!.. that is a weak line up this year. I've seen neither the Global Stars nor Team Raven, everything else is very familiar. :sad:

It is indeed a very weak line up and has probably made my mind up whether or not to go.

Hopefully the Reds will use Hawarden again on Sunday for refuelling and I'll nip up there instead.

Be nice if use Battle of Britain flight could fly over Chester on the way too.

Battle of Britain flight using Hawarden on Saturday and Sunday for those local who are interested in seeing them.

Red Arrows operating from Hawarden too on Sunday and Monday.

Sad to say for us Chester people that the BBMF are now using Liverpool as their base over the weekend, minus the Lancaster which is unserviceable and hasn't left home base.
