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.

The thriving snowdrops at Chirk Castle

In the depths of winter the woodlands and garden at Chirk spring to life with carpets of delightful snowdrops. A visit to the gardens in February combined with a tour of the Adam Tower and delicious warming food in the tea-room can be a great way to chase away the winter blues. Catering can be pre-booked as well to ensure your party is warmed up after their walk.
