Add Powis Castle to your next UK travel itinerary for its gorgeous Italianate gardens of Welsh native plants. The castle, originally built circa 1200, began life as a medieval fortress. Remodelled and embellished over more than 400 years, it reflects the changing needs and ambitions of the Herbert family - each generation adding to the magnificent collection of paintings, sculpture, furniture and tapestries.
