Chirk Castle

Wrexham

Free entry

Chirk Castle began life 700 years ago as a magnificent medieval fortress.

It is now the last Edward I Welsh fortress, commanding views over nine counties. It was later transformed into a family home, when sold to Sir Thomas Myddelton in 1595, retaining its medieval dungeon and garderobes. Sir Thomas's descendents still remain in the Castle.


Permanent collection

Within Chirk's forbidding entrance gates and towers is housed a fascinating collection of portraits, tapestries and Adam-style furniture. The interior decorations span Baroque, Neoclassical and Gothic Revival styles, and the grounds feature award-winning gardens and topiary.
