Welshpool Tourist Information
Welshpool is a thriving town positioned about fourteen miles from Newtown and just over seventeen miles from Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant.

Welshpool has a friendly shopping environment combined with a traditional market town atmosphere, there are plenty of shops to browse at a leisurely pace, complimented with a nice selection of eating establishments and public houses. Twice a week there is a market held in the Town Hall.

Located at the Canal Wharf is Powysland Museum, spread over two floors, the museum houses three permanent galleries that illustrate the history and the progression of life in the old county of Montgomeryshire.

A few miles from the town centre is the National Trust's Powis Castle and Garden, a fascinating house with an exceptional collection of art and historical items from around the world. The Clive Museum features a spectacular collection of over 300 artefacts from India and the Far East that date back from the 17th to the 19th centuries. Outside, the outstanding formal gardens of Powis Castle have beautifully laid out terraces with an impressive 30ft-high cloud-like yew hedge, as well as lavish herbaceous borders and a woodland.

For a truly unique and thoroughly enjoyable experience, the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway takes its passengers on a leisurely 45-minute steam train journey from Welshpool to the town of Llanfair Caereinion. As passengers relax in the charming balconied carriages admiring the beautiful passing countryside, the steam locomotive effortlessly puffs along the 8-mile long narrow gauge track as it negotiates a viaduct and river bridge, as well as climbing the notoriously steep Golfa Bank.

As with other towns and villages in Powys, there are many exceptional walking routes available and Welshpool certainly has its fair share. The 135-mile long 'Glyndwr's Way National Trail' starts (or ends) in Welshpool, the trail takes walkers across rolling farmland and open moorland, through forests, around lakes and reservoirs, ending (or starting) at the town of Knighton. Another pleasurable waymarked walking trail follows the towpath of the Montgomery Canal from Newtown to Welshpool (or vice-versa).
