About the partner

Important notice - Chirk Castle and the gardens are now closed until 2 February 2019. The estate is open every day to enjoy a winter walk, and in January there are guided activities most days. A stark symbol of power, Chirk Castle was completed in 1310 during the reign of the conquering Edward I to subdue the last princes of Wales. Built on an outcrop above the meeting point of the rivers Dee and Ceiriog, the imposing silhouette of the castle was a brooding statement of English intent in these disputed lands
