The ruins of the castle have an interesting history connected with the Welshstruggle for independence in the 13th century.

There are also great views of the surrounding countryside of the Cheshire plain.
Also on the site is the new Hawarden Castle, a manor house which in 1852 became the home of the Prime Minister W E Gladstone. Also of interest is the The Parish Church of St. Deiniol (of 13th century origin) and the neo-Gothic Gladstone library containing about 30000 of Gladstone's books.
If you would like to continue your walking in the area then the nearby Wepre Park in Connah's Quay is a good option.
