Self-guided visits

A group visit enjoying time in Wolf's Den

Step back in time through the house, comparing the lives of today with those in the past, discover the beauty of the gardens and explore the wonderful wildlife living on Erddig’s 1,200-acre estate.

With space to play, explore and discover, Erddig’s history and nature links to a whole range of educational and development subjects. 

 

What can I experience? 

Take your group on an exploration of Erddig House. The outbuildings and ground level servants’ quarters provide a wonderful insight into the grim reality of servant life in the Victorian era. The opulent rooms upstairs are filled with fine furnishings, many surviving almost unaltered to the present day.  

Our superb 18th century Grade I listed formal gardens are brimming with life and colour all year round. 

Wolf's Den natural play area, open from March till October, spans nearly two acres of wild play space for all ages with den building, balancing beams and a host of other natural play equipment. 

There is even more to explore in the park. Follow one of our waymarked walks and uncover the ‘Cup and Saucer’, a unique landscaped feature and waterfall. Walk along Watt’s Dyke to the remains of a Norman Motte and Bailey Castle.  

The River Clywedog is perfect for everyone to learn about river systems, the power of water and the wildlife that thrives in it.
