Stopped in whilst in the area and really enjoyed the tour we got on. What was interesting was that instead of closing the castle completely for the winter when the cleaning and conservation work is done, they have cleverly made a tour out of it. You get to see some of the house and learn about the steps the National... More

Interesting place with plenty of history. The gardens were huge. Only some parts of the castle were open in the morning.

We went to Chirk Castle on Sunday 30/10/2026 as we were staying local for a few days. We were so glad we did as the children enjoyed themselves following the clues set around the castle, it was so good and interesting. We also had a story from the one of the volunteers, and it included children who were listening .... More

Had a fabulous visit to Chirk castle on 30th October. It's sited in a stunning location and looks very imposing from the outside. The inside was equally interesting with some stunning furniture and exhibits. We had lunch in the tea room which was tasty and good value. Having mobility issues I didn't venture down to the dungeon but it looked... More

Very pretty border castle that must have looked a bit like Beaumaris on Anglesey before being converted into a stately home.

From the impressive courtyard there is a mix... More
