Chirk Castle

Chirk, Wrexham, LL14 5AF

The National Trust lays on entertainment by the bucket load at its Chirk Castle property, the Welsh castle built in 1310 and the last one of Edward I’s reign to be inhabited. Explore the medieval fortress with its dungeon and murder holes, meet Will the archer and learn how to defend the fortress, take part in a pike drill (but don’t get put in the stocks) or sign up for a guided tour to learn a little of the magnificent castle’s colourful history. There’s an ever changing broad programme of events throughout the year so check the website for what’s on and when. We like the super East Wing exhibition on Thomas Scott Ellis, eighth Lord Howard de Walden, the twelfth richest man in Britain and an astonishing polymath, which allows you to sit in his cosy armchair by the fire, flick through early 20th century letters from the era’s great and good and listen to Dylan Thomas on the wireless. Inventive and educational stuff.

Chirk Castle also has a Garden:
