Outside Welshpool, Wales is Powis Castle, which has arguably the country's best garden. Plan to spend at least an hour strolling there. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-powiscastle_garden.

Inside the castle, see antiques, Chippendale furniture and tapestries. Also on the property is the Clive Museum, which has ornate pieces from India.

Welshpool is also where you can board the small-gauge Welshpool and Llanfair Railway for an 8-mi/13-km scenic journey. This town, 102 mi/164 km north of Cardiff, offers a good place to spend the night.
