Chirk Castle sits alongside the Llangollen canal World Heritage Site.  Designated by UNESCO in 2009, the canal celebrates Thomas Telfords great engineering achievement and safeguards 11 miles of canal and industrial heritage. With access to the breathtaking Pontcysyllte and Chirk aqueducts and atmospheric 'darkie'  tunnel being just 10 minutes from the castle, combining a trip to both makes a fabulous day out.

Immaculate lawns and borders roll down to stunning views of three counties

In the height of summer Chirk Castle is a lovely place to visit, and with so much to do there's plenty here to keep you occupied for a whole day.

The gardens will be full of colour, and a wonderful place to walk and picnic, but if it gets to warm there's always the shaded Pleasure Ground Wood to explore.

The 500 acre estate offers plenty of space to explore, whether on foot or bike.

In the summer our event programme is full of outdoor activities both on weekends and weekdays - there's always something happening at Chirk Castle.
