Situated in north-east Wales, the maritime county of Flintshire lies between the Dee Estuary, Cheshire, Denbighshire and Wrexham County Borough. With a population of 155,593, the majority of residents live in Connah’s Quay - the largest town in Flintshire, as well as the other chief towns of Talacre, Holywell and Mold.
A gateway to Ireland, and close to Roman Chester and North Wales, Flintshire is an ideal base for tourists. However, Flintshire’s rich history and abundance of attractions, means there are plenty of things to do within the county.
One of Flintshire’s highlights lies within its beautiful surroundings. Indeed, there are plenty of gorgeous walks to be explored around Loggerheads Country Park in Mold, Wepre Park in Deeside or if you’re feeling adventurous why not climb Moel Famau - the highest hill within the Clwydian Range?
