Explore 700 years of history, in Chirk Castle! Towers, two-level dungeons and murder holes - Chirk Castle has it all. And a curious fact - it’s the only castle of its time still inhabited today! With 480 acres of parklands to explore, you’re sure to find a good picnic spot for you and your family. There’s plenty of space for the little ones to run around and play. You can even spot sheep and wild ponies in the fields.

Lucky enough to bump into the Chirk Castle garrison? You’ll get the chance to see a demonstration of the guards’ weapons and armour. The young knights in your group may even be included in a pike drill, so they can learn how to defend the castle from invaders. Just remember to follow orders, unless you want to end up in the stocks...

Families with kids are always welcome at Chirk Castle. There’s an activity room where you and your tots can play games, try on costumes and learn about the fascinating past of the castle. With kid-friendly seasonal events taking place throughout the year, you’ll have fun whenever you visit.
