The Llangollen Canal adjoins the Myddelton Estate and is one of the most popular waterways in Britain. Chirk Marina was constructed by the Myddelton Estate in the early 1990s and provides private moorings, holiday narrowboats for hire from Black Prince Holidays and Marine Cruises, and a small shop and chandlery for narrowboat owners.
All marina enquiries can be made on 01691 774558.
The Myddelton Familys historic family seat since 1595, Chirk Castle is an outstanding example of a border marcher fortress which is still lived in today. The Castle has been managed by the National Trust since the property was conveyed to the Welsh Office in 1978, and is now supported through CADW and the Welsh Assembly.
The Myddelton Family still retain a suite of private rooms in the Castle, and the Castle and grounds are open to the public 5 days a week from March to late October in each year.
