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.
