Discover the eclectic Medieval Fortress, Chirk Castle
The Welsh castle was built in 1310 and the last one of Edward I's reign to be inhabited. The National Trust offers a fantastic range of exhibitions and activities at the property. 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.
