Powis Castle
Medieval castle rising dramatically above the celebrated garden

The world-famous garden, overhung with clipped yews, shelters rare and tender plants. Laid out under the influence of Italian and French styles, it retains its original lead statues and an orangery on the terraces. High on a rock above the terraces, the castle, originally built circa 1200, began life as a medieval fortress.

Remodelled and embellished over more than 400 years, it reflects the changing needs and ambitions of the Herbert family – each generation adding to the magnificent collection of paintings, sculpture, furniture and tapestries.

A superb collection of treasures from India is displayed in the Clive Museum.

Please note, due to the medieval deer park, we regret no dogs are allowed.

Attingham Park
A story of love and neglect lies at the heart of this 18th-century mansion and estate.

Attingham Park was built for the 1st Lord Berwick in 1785 and was in continuous ownership by the family for more than 160 years.

As their fortunes rose and fell they proved themselves to be spenders, savers and saviours – providing a fascinating story of love and neglect.
