Powis is one of the few Baroque gardens to survive almost intact since the 1680s. You can wander the grand Italianate terraces blasted from the solid rock.

The combination of terraces, formal and informal gardens make the Garden at Powis a delight for enthusiasts as well as lovers of beauty and tranquility. The Garden is of the highest horticultural and historical importance.

See the 30ft high yew hedge, dancing statues and lavish herbaceous borders. The sweet scent of flowers fills the air - whatever the season.
