Powis' multi-layered garden
Wales is famous for its rugged landscapes and ancient fortresses and less known for its gardens, and yet Powis has one of the finest gardens in Britain. Visitors come from all over the world to enjoy its superb horticultural craftsmanship and marvel at what is often described as one of the greatest surviving examples of Baroque garden design in Britain.
See the terraces descend to the Great Lawn, backed by the Wilderness ridge with its towering Oaks. To the left see the elegant Edwardian Formal Garden, deer park and in the far distance Long Mountain and the Breidden Hills.
There is a sense of relaxation which cannot be achieved on hanging terraces so dominated by the towering castle walls' open lawns. Take a seat and enjoy the view or play games on our croquet lawn.
A garden for all seasons
Our gardens never fail to provide anything less than a jaw-dropping horticultural extravaganza.
