Our daughter had visited Chirk Castle on a few occasions with her school or holiday club and asked that we take her for the Easter Egg hunt. We checked out the price of the trip and decided to become National Trust members as it will save us a great deal of money. The venue was busy but the numbers were... More

Chirk castle has been on my list of national trust places to visit & we wasn't disappointed. We arrived early enough to take the tour of the family home within the castle before it opened to the general public (this tour was very good however if we had taken our children especially the younger ones i wouldn't particularly recommend it...

If your an outdoor person, there is plenty to see, the grounds are so pretty and you can enjoy a nice hour of exploring. I didn't find we spent long in the castle as there wasn't that much to get around and we were there on a day where rain was on and off, so not much entertainment for the... More

We spent a full day covering the castle interior and grounds. Don't miss a visit to Chirk village where you can see the Llangollen Aqueduct and Viaduct stunning views. Shame the sun didn't shine.

Grounds are stunning, lovely walks, good views and depending on the time of year lovely snowdrop walks or bluebells. Rhododendrons are also plentiful with lovely range of colours. Castle is really interesting and good variety of room types to see.

We had been staying in north wales for a few days, and on our way back to the midlands, we stopped off. The climb to the castle is steep but worth it. The rooms in the castle are interesting and the gardens very well kept. We also enjoyed some tea and cake!!

Stayed in the semi-detached cottage on the estate which was very peaceful and well equipped. Visited the castle which is an old Edwardian marcher castle in good condition but not a lot in the rooms compared to other National Trust properties.

Only stopped off here briefly last week whilst I was in the area. The grounds were stunning and well maintained, with plenty of activities and things to see to fill a day. I shall certainly be returning soon when I have a full day to leisurely walk and explore the location fully.

A beautiful castle with incredible views but where on earth do they find their staff? A short walk brings you to the front of the castle. Having been to a number of NT properties we have found that the house entrance isn't always the way in. Luckily NT have provided an extremely sarcastic peasant girl to point you in the... More

Well I might be 27 but that still doesn't stop this being a good family day out with my mum and sisters. We went as we are National Trust members (so free entry) and it was worth the hour long drive to get here. Very busy when we turned up, but once inside the grounds everyone can space out. Definitely... More
