  • visited in early August ,dissapointed to find the castle locked ,now if this was done to protect it from vandalism then i could understand but there were about a dozen children inside the castle as it...  more »
  • Along the whole coast you will find the castle of equipment against enemy attacks from the sea. Flint is a ruin on the one hand, yet you get an impression of the original form and the construction work necessary to construct something on main for more than 600 years ago.

  • Free parking and entry so this is a must see. The place where Richard II surrendered to Henry of Bolingbroke. The information panels are really informative about why Flint was so strategic.  more »

  • Fantastic place to visit. Wrap up if it's cold and if you've a good head for heights check out the spiral staircase to the top of the tower 😨
  • It was my first time in Wales with my partner today. Was just a brief visit and had a walk around the castle and the coastal tourist route. Stunning views well recommended for a visit especially if your a castle fan. Well looked after one of the best castles I've visited in years and such friendly people with great accents lol.
  • Well kept grounds and picturesque on a sunny day. Not a huge amount to see or do, a couple of short walks are nearby, but a lovely place for a picnic in the right weather. Free entry, free car park.
  • Nicely kept old pile in between housing estate and estuary. Couple of nice strolls round castle and along foreshore.
  • Have been a few times in passing with the family, when gates are open you can spend a good half hour wandering round. Looking forward to the tower being reopened and climbing the new stairway to get a different view of things. The only drawback of an unsupervised site is that last time someone had a large dog running around inside the castle, disturbing other groups.
