Pick up your trail pack from the Ticket Office on arrival, follow the trail around the garden and collect your chocolate egg reward at the end. An alternative non-chocolate reward will be available if requested. Please note towards the end of the day eggs will be avaialble to collect at the Ticket Office.

All trails are £3. Before visiting, please check local and national government guidance on travelling.

Visiting this Easter

If you are planning to visit this Easter please bear in mind that we may be busier than usual, particularly from 11 April when the Easter trail starts. Chirk Castle is usually busiest from 11am to 2:30pm, so if you visit early or late you will find the site a little quieter. Also if you brave a bad forecast you will usually find the site quieter, and with wellies and coats a rainy day can be a great day too!

There is limited car parking, so on peak days, particularly the Easter weekend, you may have to wait for a space. If the car park is full we may need to restrict access to the site temporarily until more space is available. Keep an eye on our website and social media for messages.

The cafe, kiosk and ice cream parlour will be open daily, but there is also plenty of picnic space if you want to bring your own food.
