Chirk Castle Review

This impressive medieval fortress has evolved from its 14th-century origins into a grand home complete with an 18th-century servants hall and interiors furnished in 16th- to 19th-century styles. However, it still looks satisfyingly medieval from the outside—and also below ground, where you tour the original dungeons. Surrounding the castle are beautiful formal gardens and parkland. Chirk Castle is 5 miles southeast of Llangollen.
