CHIRK Castle is the latest attraction across the region to announce it will reopen after months of closure during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Parts of the medieval tourist attraction will be open to the public on Wednesday for the first time since March.

Booking will be necessary for visitors, and those who have not booked will be turned away.

Chairman of Chirk Town Council, Councillor Brian Colley, is pleased to see such an integral part of the community reopening.

"It's an important facility for our local residents and people living in nearby areas," he said.

"It's been a shame to see the grounds of the castle closed – it's a great place which people have access to for their walking and exercise in normal circumstances.

"And the castle as well is an important facility which young families use a lot for days out, so it's great to see it opening again."

A statement released on Chirk Castle's website reads: "We’re re-opening the garden, estate, and Home Farm toilets and kiosk at Chirk Castle from July 8.

"You'll need to book your tickets by 3pm on the day before your visit. Members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking.

"We'll be releasing tickets every Friday. Please note we'll be turning people away who arrive and haven't booked. The castle, shop and tea-room will remain closed for now."
