Flint (Welsh: Y Fflint) is the county town of Flintshire.
- West of Chester just off the A55
- 1 Flint railway station. On the North Wales Coast Line Crewe - Holyhead
- 1 Flint castle. Ruins of 13th century castle. It was the first of a series of castles built during King Edward I's campaign to conquer Wales.
- Wales Coast Path follows the entire Welsh coastline. Going north to south, the first stage starts at the border at the edge of Chester, and is 29 miles / 47 km via Flint to Prestatyn. These early miles are industrial and brownfield, with great vistas of mud when the tide's out on the Dee estuary.
- Football: Flint Town United ("The Silkmen") play soccer in the Cymru Premier League. That's the top tier within Wales, but mostly amateur and on a par with England's fifth tier National League. Their home ground is Cae-y-Castell (sponsored as Essity Stadium), capacity 1000, on the coast near the railway station.
- Connah's Quay Nomads also play in the Cymru Premier League. In spite of their name they do have a regular home ground at Deeside Stadium, capacity 1500, two miles southeast of Flint town centre.
