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.
Winter warmers at Powis
What could be better after a refreshing stroll in the garden, than warming up with a hearty lunch or hot drink in the Courtyard Restaurant?
The Courtyard Restaurant is open daily throughout January and February (10am-4pm). The Garden is open 11am- 4pm.
We love local producers
Meet Clive, a 12” limited edition mohair bear made exclusively for sale in our Courtyard Shop.
Designed by local producers Merrythought of Shropshire, we think Clive’s the perfect souvenir to take home. One of only 150 collectable bears, his footpads emulate the stunning fabric in Tipu Sultan’s tent located in the ballroom.
