Falconry in the Gardens

Falconry in the Gardens


Relive history at Chirk Castle with falconry in the picturesque gardens. Watch a flying display, and take the opportunity to get closer to these amazing birds.

We welcome Shropshire Falconry to Chirk Castle for a day that harks back to the 1920s when Lord Howard de Walden kept his own birds of prey. Watch the fantastic display as trained handlers fly falcons, hawks and owls and then get closer to the birds with a static display, and all in the beautiful surroundings of the Chirk Castle gardens.

Meet the birds from 11-2, then flying show at 2pm.
Booking not needed.
