Notes Caergwrle and Ewloe castles re both open 24/7 but we strongly recommend not visiting during darkness. Flint Castle is locked overnight, but can still be visited externally.

There are no facilities at any of the castles but there are good facilities in both the town of Caergwrle and the town of Flint. At Ewloe there is a visitor centre at the large car park, although this is some distance from the castle.
