Powis Castle

Powis Castle is a medieval castle rising dramatically above its celebrated garden.

Powis Castle garden is world-famous. 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.

The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway

The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway was opened in 1903 to link the market town of Welshpool to the rural community of Llanfair Caereinion. The steam railway uses 2 foot 6 inch narrow gauge. It now provides a tourist service for all the family. Built as a Light Railway to avoid some of the costs of railway construction, the narrow gauge allows for tight curves and steep gradients, enabling the line to follow the contours of the countryside.
