'Chirk Under the Covers' - Special guided tours


Join one of our special guided weekend tours this November to take a look at Chirk behind the scenes, peek through some usually closed doors, and find out about the special conservation work our House team do over the winter.

Booking not needed.

During winter our House Team are able to get to work on all of the intensive conservation work that a 700 year old castle requires. The castle is closed during the week, and the castle is tucked up under dust covers.

It's a perfect time to open some normally closed doors, have a look at things that are usually hidden away, and find out about some of the specialist work on on of our weekend, volunteer guided 'under the covers' tours.

Tours are by timed-ticket, available on the day.
