THE rooms at Chirk Castle have been transformed with displays of various Christmas traditions.

The displays are open to visitors throughout the festive season, with the rooms open every day until December 31, except Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Each room features its own individually decorated Christmas tree, portraying a different Christmas tradition.

These displays include a cracker themed tree in Cromwell Hall, complete with party hats, jokes and a display of a giant exploded cracker.

The Grand Staircase features a tree celebrating family board games, adorned with giant dice and playing cards, while the Dining Room features a champagne celebration with cascading bubbles.

The Drawing Room contains an ode to Christmas Eve, which continues into Christmas Morning in the Saloon, decorated with presents donated by staff and volunteers.

The Long Gallery is where visitors will find an entirely knitted Nativity scene, crafted by National Trust volunteers with a themed tree to accompany the scene, complete with crocheted characters and stars.

Finally, in the Music Room visitors will be treated to a celebration of pantomime and theatre. Chirk Castle specifically pays homage to the De Walden family who wrote and performed their own pantomimes at the castle.

Outside of these displays visitors are still free to explores the grounds and trails of Chirk Castle, with 480 acres of parkland to wonder through.

Doors open at 11 am with last entry at 3:30 pm.
