For a welcome change from life’s normal humdrum, Welshpool is a breath of fresh air. With a rich and vibrant history, the many attractions keep visitors coming back for more.
Take a leisurely stroll through the picturesque streets of Welshpool and experience classic Georgian architecture. The bricks that form the bedrock of Welshpool were transported via the Montgomery Canal during the town’s glory days as a major transport hub.
The Montgomery Canal stretches for 33 miles and is recognised as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to its rich variety of rare wildlife. The chance to watch otters playing, shy water voles, and bejewelled kingfishers can be enjoyed from the deck of a pleasure boat.
Displaying artefacts from Welshpool’s colourful past, the Powysland Museum looks out over the Canal. From its Bronze Age beginnings through to the present day, these impressive collections are a fascinating glimpse into the history, culture and traditions of this charming Welsh town.
The world famous Powis Castle is a must-see whilst in Welshpool. Featuring one of the finest collections of furniture and paintings in Wales, this grand castle, built around 1200 has seen kings and princes come and go. However, now with its elegant gardens, topiaried hedges, statues and vast vistas, it stands proudly, overlooking the region.
