“A great medieval day out”

We visited the castle and gardens on a lovely hot , sunny summers day and had a great time. The national trust volenteers demonstrating the medieval weaponary were fantastic. They kept the kids entertained with the interactive sword, jousting and pike training in the castle courtyard. There where lots of weapons, armour and costumes available for the kids to try and dress up in. Our kids loved it. The Castle itself was lovely and there was alot of it open for viewing but as usual you come away wishing for more of it being available to see. The gardens were lovely and well maintained providing nice peaceful walks. There was a nice childrens play area next to a cafe but this could do with being a bit bigger to keep the kids occupied for longer but this is only a very minor moan on an otherwise fantastic day out for all our family

Chirk Castle is one of my favourite National Trust properties.We have been to the Castle for visits and for the Dragon Quests, but this time we went to a child's 6th Birthday Party that was organised by them.I would recommend it as a brilliant venue for a party, good value, nice food and very well organised with themed events for the children to take part in the courtyard. Part of the day was also spent in the children's playground and visiting the rest of the castle, so it was a lovely day out.

Stopped off on our way home, was a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Lovely Castle and lots of information in the rooms...

Grounds are nice to walk around - lovely gardens.

Would think though this is an expensive couple of hours if we didnt have national trust cards...

We loved this castle! The guided tour is wonderful, entertaining, and no extra cost. The castle has much to do for children and young families. The gardens are exquisite. De spent 2 glorious hours here and would return.

Had a lovely day at Chirk Castle - what a marvellous place, although there are stairs to negotiate. The sun was shining which always makes anywhere better but it was so interesting in the castle, laundry room, servants quarters and gardens. A lovely day out.
