About the 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.

Great afternoon the kids completed Peacock trail and we walked through the castle which opens for visitors to walk around inside from 1200 mid-day. The gardens are beautiful and we'll maintained. There are lots of places to have a picnic or just sit and relax, we also grabbed a cuppa-t and sat in the castle courtyard and admired the colorful peacocks as they walked around ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

Very well maintained. Sculptured gardens. Peacock showing full display of there beautiful colours. Well worth a visit. Gift shop in the court yard. Lots of walking in the adjacent woodland. Powis castle and peacocks well worth a view.

Excellent day out. Several peacocks seemed pleased to see the public again and we got lovely photos. Rhododendrons very colourful. Gardens well maintained and stocked. Staff helpful. Inside castle very interesting.

Wow! What a magnificent experience. The smell and views of summer made me feel like I was a regal in heaven. Honeysuckle, Rose's, peonies galore! We will be back with friends and family soon. I love the odd shaped bushes to, they really captured our imaginations. Thank you National Trust

Went on a warm Saturday really busy but there's a good reason for that. Lovely place to go to, impressive property with fantastic, well kept gardens. Kids loved it and we enjoyed the cafe that was well stock and quick considering how packed it was.
