As part of our canal adventure, we moored near the Chirk Tunnel and walked up to Chirk Castle. The road meanders up to the castle but for us on foot, we were able to follow a trail trough the fields to the Castle.
Staying in NE Wales, we visited several National Trust properties - one of which was Chirk Castle.
We had a marvelous introductory talk by a knowledgeable docent. He set the stage using humor and historical information so that we were able to have a sense...More
First visit to this castle and wasn't disappointed. The whole castle and it's surrounding estate really is beautiful. Plenty of history to see here and the numerous staff were always on hand to explain and help. Enjoyed it so much we virtually spent the whole...More
First visit to Chirk Castle but we will definitely be returning. Plenty of parking and areas for a picnic as well as a play area for the children. The castle is amazing with various parts open to explore. The gardens are well maintained and expansive....More
Have visited a few times previously and walked around the gardens and in the castle, but this visit we also went on the Offa's Dyke walk - just off the road from the car park, before you head up the hill to the castle and...More
Fascinating Castle well preserved with something of interest for everyone. The grounds are well kept and incorporated into a 7 mile walk around the local area. Paths are easy to walk on, but fairly steep terrain. Usual NT hospitality and well maintained facilities.
We took a guided tour of Chirk and it was excellent. The Myddleton family owned and lived in this castle for over 400 years. The state rooms have been remodelled several times and the decor now reflects Pugin's taste for Gothic in the entrance hall...More

A well preserved old castle. You may find guided visits (100% recommendable) but most of the building is open to public (paying). The estate and some facilities (picnic area, playground, etc.) are for free.

Check out the National Trust website for Chirk Castle. The cost is for the whole experience, castle and garden. As one visitor told me you can get a family ticket for a year for the price of a macdonalds once a month. An annual membership allows you as many visits as you want and to every National Trust property or grounds as well as free parking. Well worth joining as there are over 500 places to visit in England, Wales and Ireland. So have fun
