Flint castle is a beautiful piece of history, it has been well maintained and is a delight to visit. i recommend a flask of tea/coffee and a few sandwiches and sit on the grass and marvel at it stunning structure.

The first castle in Wales well kept, great views, new view point top of big tower, 56 steps to see all over the Dee estuary. Worth the climb.

Good parking, free admission. Good ruins with a new steel spiral staircase giving access to the top of one tower for superb views over the countryside. Nice quiet area. There is also a solar powered system with a short excerpt from Shakespeare on how Bolingbroke...More

Small ruin on the coast. Free entry as not much to see. Parking in adjacent roads. A couple of towers to climb. Great views. Probably only worth 15 minutes of your time so don't make a special journey.

Easy to find and free entry/parking nearby. Climbed the circular staircase and on such a beautiful day the views were stunning. Enjoyable couple of hours spent in castle and coastal walk past old harbour and back through woods.

Only small but interesting and good views non the less. Easy and free parking, free entry, and dog friendly makes it worth a visit. There's also a coastal path to extend your walk.

I think this is the oldest standing castle left in Wales and turned out to be a nice little explore. Offering lovely views and a nice place to walk the dog. Parking available and close to the tracks onto the seafront.

There is a free public car park about 150m away from the castle. Just drive past the castle and follow the P signs. The car park is an easy flat walk to the castle entrance. The castle is also free.
