Get around

See

  • 1 Chirk Castle (Castell y Waun), Chirk, LL14 5AF, ☏ +44 1691 777701, fax: +44 1691 774706, ✉ chirkcastle@nationaltrust.org.uk. 11am - 5pm (4pm Oct-Feb). Closed Mondays. Closed Tuesdays except Jul-Aug. Limited weekend only opening in winter. This magnificent late-13th century castle is the last of its era in Wales still to be lived in. Look out for the imposing wrought iron gates. Apart from the castle itself, the gardens are a popular visitor attraction in their own right. £8 adult, £4 child. Reduced prices for garden-only admission.
  • 2 Chirk Aqueduct. 70-foot (21 m) high and 710-foot (220 m) long navigable aqueduct that carries what is now the Llangollen Canal across the Ceiriog Valley 
  • 3 The Ceiriog Valley (Dyffryn Ceiriog). This beautiful valley follows the Afon Ceiriog river from its source in the Berwyn Mountains, 18 miles to its confluence with the River Dee at Chirk. Former UK Prime Minister (from 1916–22) David Lloyd-George described the valley as A little bit of heaven on Earth, and it has changed little since his time. Despite its proximity to the A5, one of the main tourist routes into North Wales, the valley is little-known and rarely visited.
