A multi-layered garden

Explore a paradise in Wales. Dating back 300 years, our world-class gardens are steeped in history.

Nowhere else will you experience such a theatrical mix of dramatic terraces, sophisticated flower borders, fantastical topiary and superb views.

Extreme gardening at Powis

Once a year our gardeners take to the air for ten weeks to trim our famous yew tumps and hedging. This ensures these unique plants continue to wow thousands of our visitors each year.
