Powis Castle

Day 8 – Time to move on to the new base for the second week of my Holiday. I’m relocating from south west Wales to the north west – half way there I took a major diversion to visit Powis Castle.

Powis Castle

Given it’s location – it not somewhere I could normally visit so it was an opportunity not to be missed.

The rain had been chasing me all the way from Cardigan and it seemed I would be visiting the castle and gardens in the rain. However after I had been walking around the gardens for about an hour, the rain stopped and the sun reappeared. It was soon so hot that I had to make a return trip to the car to drop my coat off.

The castle is situated high on a hill and is surrounded by stunning gardens that descend through various levels to the foot of the hill. Inside the castle you have access to a good proportion of the rooms.
