Flint Castle was built by Edward I and was intended as a stop-gap between his fortress at Chester and the new fortress he intended for Rhuddlun; each of the three locations being a days march apart. A temporary base with pallisade was established in July 1277; it was largely complete when in 1294 the Welsh rose in rebellion under Madog Ap Llewellyn. The Castle held out successfully against many attacks and was maintained in good order. It was the scene of Richard II's surrender to Henry Bollinbroke in August 1399.
The remains as we see them today feature an impressive ditch and foundations of medieval houses in the yard. As you enter the Castle you can see the remains of the curtain walls and the towers, in particular the Great tower which is protected by a ditch and is accesible by a bridge.
Entrance to the Castle is free during daylight hours.
