Well worth a visit - we really needed a day but only had a couple of hours. Lots of activities for kids and a handy shuttle bus to/from the car park

Lovely castle and gardens. Been before but took a friend with me and she loved it. I would recommend a visit to anybody interested in our heritage and/or history.

More like a stately home than a castle, beautiful location with beautiful landscaped gardens. Can definitely recommend Chirk Castle as a great historical place to visit.
