Life in Flintshire

The 'gateway' to North Wales

The County's location and transport links make us an ideal base for business and growth. Businesses have quick and easy access to key markets, services and industrial regions across the Northwest and Midlands.

Known as the Gateway to North Wales, Flintshire benefits from a well planned and effective road network. There is easy access to the M53 to Liverpool and the M56 to Manchester, and the major international airports of these cities. Excellent direct rail links exist to London and other major cities, and there are local port facilities at Mostyn.

The quality of life in Flintshire is supported by competitive property prices, superb leisure and educational facilities, and accessible countryside and coastal walks.

Heritage and landscape

The natural environment is rich and varied. From the stunning views, open moorland and wild upland heaths of the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the West, to the award-winning sands of Talacre, rural Flintshire is a landscape of incredible variety. Then there are the quiet riversides, wooded valleys and rolling farmland of Llanasa, Ysceifiog, Whitford and Caergwrle, the wildlife rich coasts, and the River Dee and Estuary. The historic city of Chester and the Snowdonia National Park are both on the doorstep.

At Greenfield Country Park, you'll find one and a half miles of woodlands, reservoirs, ancient monuments and industrial history with Abbey Farm Museum forming the focal point of the park, and reconstructed local farm buildings providing an evocative backdrop for the displays. Or, visit Wepre Country Park in Connah's Quay: 160 acres of woodland between the town and Ewloe. The ancient woodland site is rich with wildlife and historical interest.
