It's yours to explore...

Conveniently located between the Roman City of Chester and Snowdonia, Flintshire is much more than just a gateway.

For a short break with a difference, an action-packed family holiday, a memorable historic tour, or a base for sightseeing in Wales, Cheshire, and the Wirral, it has something for every age group all-year round.

Green and Pleasant

Contrasts abound in Flintshire. From the tranquil rolling hills and valleys making up the Clwydian Range to peaceful woodlands, country lanes, golden sands, uncommercialised villages, and panoramic views across the Cheshire plain and towards Snowdon, it ensures variety and endless pleasures for visitors, young and old alike.

Waun y Llyn Country Park, Wepre Park and the Greenfield Valley Heritage Park are superbly maintained and are idyllic surroundings in which to walk, explore, and observe nature at work. Historic sites include St Winefrides Well, one of the Seven Wonders of Wales, Basingwerk Abbey and Flint Castle.

Flintshire offers freedom, choice, and that get away from it all feeling, without ever making visitors seem remote or isolated.
