Located in the picturesque edge of the Ceiriog Valley, Chirk is the perfect choice for visitors wishing to explore the many attractions it offers all year round.
The Hand Hotel is conveniently located right next to Chirk railway station and public transport links within the area are excellent; thus giving easy access to neighbouring towns such as Llangollen, Wrexham, Oswestry and Whitchurch.
Approximately 21 miles to the north of Chirk is the historic city of Chester with boasts free entry to its magnificent Cathedral, designer stores, boat trips along the River Dee and some of the North West’s finest restaurants – and with a regular, direct link from Chirk railway station you can be there in just over half an hour.
For visitors wishing to explore the area on foot, there are certainly endless opportunities for walking adventures – not least of all from Chirk to Llangollen and across the rather impressive Telford aqueduct. This magnificent piece of architecture is regarded as being one of the most spectacular canal scenes and at 70 feet high, certainly needs a head for heights! From here you can peacefully stroll all the way into Llangollen for a much more relaxed take on the Dee Valley. The town itself has many attractions, including horse drawn canal trips, and has an array of pretty cafes and restaurants overlooking the River Dee. Llangollen is also renowned for its many quirky gift shops so be sure to pop in and have a browse.
Suffice it to say, The Hand Hotel is ideally placed for the many local attractions and provides an unrivalled base to explore from.
