Welcome to Colwyn Bay


Colwyn Bay is the thriving North Wales town everyone is talking about.

Perfectly situated off all major transport arteries, Colwyn Bay is fast re- emerging as the commercial and leisure centre of North Wales.

With more than £70+ million worth of investment already pumped into the area, this vibrant seaside town has a bright future ahead of it.

The town’s extensive regeneration programme has been the catalyst to bring new leisure activity, confidence and investment to the town.

Colwyn Bay is now a vibrant, contemporary resort where sports and arts meet the sea and business.

And did we mention about the amazing variety of accommodation, places to eat and shopping facilities on offer too?

Visitors flock to the vibrant year round dry beach and other great attractions, things to do and markets the town has to offer including state-of-the-art leisure facilities at Eirias.

The Eirias Stadium is also home to a great range of events and includes the start of the Rally GB and concerts by world renowned musicians such as Tom Jones and Elton John, with some performances being their first ever in North Wales!

The revamped waterfront and fantastic watersports centre at Porth Eirias also bring the crowds and there’s even the UK’s oldest operating cinema at Theatr Colwyn.

Public and private sector investment and confidence are boosted.

Conwy County Council’s new offices and tourist information will open in the town in 2018, bringing over 750 additional workers to the town centre.

This major investment in the town will also provide a great boost to town centre footfall and trade.

Business really is booming!

There’s even National recognition for all the great work and positive investment in Colwyn Bay with a plethora of awards over the last few years including, to name but a few:

• 2014 Great British High Street Award for Best Coastal Town;

• 2014 Finalist in Britain in Bloom;

• 2014 All Wales Continuous Improvement Award – Winner for Collaboration and Working across boundaries with Eirias: Colwyn Health Precinct;

• 2014 RICS Wales Awards - Regeneration Finalist & Design through Innovation Finalist for Porth Eirias.

So come and join us to see why Colwyn Bay is ‘perfectly placed’.
