Powis Castle and Garden, Welshpool

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Ancient castle walls towering over world-renowned gardens set the stage for a visit to Powis Castle and Garden. In addition to a vast collection of artifacts from India housed in the Clive Museum, the estate highlights cultivated, formal gardens influenced by Italian and French styles. A wooded ridge just opposite the castle hides sculpture among the great oaks and rhododendrons. The grounds offer organized treasure hunts for children and croquet on the games lawn for adults. You’re welcome to explore the medieval deer park, however, any pets must be left at home. Our Welshpool vacation route planner makes visiting Powis Castle and Garden and other Welshpool attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Stunning medieval Castle. Fantastic views, friendly, welcoming staff and volunteers. Fascinating history, beautiful paintings. Will definitely be back again.
  • I love visiting National Trust properties What I liked about this was the effort that has been put into creating the trenches of the world war in the servants area of the house. The gardens are also very beautiful.
