Queen's Palace entertainment complex in West Parade was featured on this blog Monday, 23 February 2009 in a post titled QUEEN'S PALACE. Here are glimpses of the interior. The pictures at the top show the roof garden and the replica African village that used to be in the glass dome. The other picture shows the ballroom with seats laid out for a concert performance.

Taking a chronological view - as we tend to do here in Rhyl - we see Queen’s Palace opened in 1902 a year after the pier’s Grand Pavilion was destroyed by fire and then, in turn, was itself destroyed by fire in 1907 a year before Rhyl Pavilion opened.

When people say, 'Rhyl had wonderful attractions’, I think: Yes but not necessarily at the same time.
