Lovely walk when castle is open. Steep and hilly in places and not suitable for wheelchairs. Pavilion area is fine where the car rally was.

Attended the Charity Open Day. Been a few times over the years. Can't see as much of the gardens as you used to. £3 entry. Bar and coffee etc available. Nice day out if you are passing

Open space with plenty of space to walk your dog. Peaceful and beautiful countryside within the gates. A lovely place for family walks and picnics or a cool drink across the road in the Glynne Arms. It's worth doing a bit of local historical research...More

It's s very easy Sunday afternoon stroll around the grounds of Hawarden Castle. Good place to collect conkers, too, whether for playing or for spider deterrents in the corners of rooms.

Fantastic venue for the outdoor Proms in front of the castle, a very rare privilege to be at venue in those grounds. Wonderful atmosphere despite the torrential rain (rechristened Proms in the Ark), plenty of room for picnic paraphernalia, parking nearby.

The Hawarden castle is privately owned and only open to the public twice a year. However, you can walk through the main entrance gates, wander through the parkland and see the castle. This castle was the final resting place for the last Prince Llewelyn of...More
