Long Description:
Prestatyn railway station on the North Wales Coast Line serves the town of Prestatyn in North Wales.

The station was built on the Chester and Holyhead Railway (CHR) line and opened on 1 May 1848. The coming of the railway is credited with bringing large numbers of tourists and prosperity to the town.[1] When the CHR was acquired by the London & North Western Railway (LNWR), further expansion ccurred at Prestatyn and the station became a junction for a branch line to Dyserth. In the 1890s, the LNWR built the current station.

Passenger numbers dipped significantly during the mid 20th century. After British Rail tried to close the station in the 1960s, the line and station were rationalised but remained operational. In 1979, the station was renovated. It is managed by Transport for Wales and served by their services from Cardiff Central, Birmingham International and Manchester to Holyhead and Llandudno; other services are provided by Virgin Trains (West Coast) to London Euston.
