Autism awareness at Chirk Castle 

If you or someone you are travelling with has Autism, ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) or ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition), visiting a busy tourist attraction can be an overwhelming experience. At Chirk Castle we are striving to be autism friendly, and we want to work with autistic visitors to ensure they can enjoy their visit with us.
