Welshpool and the borderlands possess many attractions and the area is steeped in history. Wales is often referred to as 'The Land of Castles' and the area does not disappoint.

The impressive and imposing Powis Castle watches over Welshpool and a few short miles away the ruins of the 13th century Montgomery Castle provides spectacular views of the Severn Valley.

Surprise is often expressed at the magnificence of the old railway station, an extravagant building resembling a French chateau in style. It was designed to act as the railway company headquarters, although it only remained in this capacity between 1860 and 1862.
