Powis Castle and Garden
Medieval castle rising dramatically above the celebrated garden
Powis is a Welsh castle built by a Welsh prince - Gruffudd ap Gwenwynwyn - (c1252). It survived sieges, wars and division to become one of the most prominent castles in Wales.
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. By 1909 the castle, gardens and estate were in their heyday.
