Dyserth Falls at Prestatyn, Wales
Gwrych Castle in Abergale, Wales (main part of mystery tour - grounds only shown)
Rhyl sea front

the holiday camp shown was Pontins at Pretatyn Sands - Pontins at that site is still open (http://www.pontins.com/holiday-parks/prestatyn-sands/), although it's been refurbished a number of times since 1973!.
