Chirk is a small town in the county of Wrexham in northeastern Wales. It is across the River Ceiriog from the English border.

The town originated in the 13th Century after a castle was built there.

Today, Chirk is best known as the location of Chirk Castle, a National Heritage site completely intact that opened to the public in 2005. Both the castle and its grounds, particularly its well kept, beautiful gardens, are a tourist draw. The town is also known for its historic aqueduct and viaduct.
