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.
