"Chirk Castle" Chirk by sandysmith
Chirk Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 118 photos
The other weekend we had a ride out into North Wales/Shropshire border and headed for Chirk Castle which for many a year now has been home to the Myddleton family. Its now run by the National Trust and one ing of ornate rooms can be visited (although no photos allowed).The laundries on the outer edge of the castle can be seen and are a real throw back in time to see the old flat irons and mangles. The gardens are beautiful with stately topiary yews and sweeping lawns stretching down to far reaching views. The old thatched hawk house is now a popular place for weddings - the castle has its own registered chapel which accommodates up to 80. Weddings have to be before 12 or after 5pm to fit in with public opening times.
We visited the garden first and then the castle - we were glad as after half an hour a a snow storm hit giving us Spring and Winter in a few short hours! Concerned with getting stuck on welsh roads we decided to return to the car only to find that the sun was out again - that's our British weather for you!
