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.

George Herbert, the 4th Earl (3rd creation) and his wife Violet undertook a comprehensive restoration of the castle and grounds during the Edwardian era, with the help of the architect G F Bodley.
The Powis Castle Appeal
Powis' once-grand East Front needs urgent repairs.
Damp is spreading through the stonework and the steps that King George V and Queen Mary once used are crumbling. We’re £304,000 short of the estimated £500,000 cost of these vital repairs.
Help us save this Welsh treasure by donating online or texting POWIS to 70123 to donate £3.
