Explore the Beautiful Powis Castle Garden
Powis Castle´s Garden is laid out under the influence of Italian and French styles. The garden retains its original lead statues, a sunken orangery, hanging gardens and an aviary on a series of spectacularly planted terraces. The fullness and sense of colour here are terrific. In the 18th century an informal woodland wilderness was created on the opposing ridge with fine views over the Severn Valley. On the valley floor are geometric formal gardens of fruit trees and bedding.
Powis Castle & Garden also has a Historic House:
Powis Castle & Garden is part of the following Inspirations:
"The medieval castle at Powys sits amongst some of the loveliest gardens in Wales – all laid out in stunning French and Italianate style. Visitors come from all over the world to see what is said to be one of the finest surviving examples of Baroque garden design. Go seek the long-ago forged lead dancing statues, the fleeting deer, smartly clipped yews and the elegant orangery on the terraces blasted from solid rock. Generations of the Herbert family have roamed these historic paths and meadows and their shape and look has changed to match the family’s fortunes. You can just imagine them gathered on the grassy terraces, which overlook the entire formal gardens as well as the Welsh hillsides, plotting their rise to power."
