Welcome to Welshpool

This small historic market town on the banks to the Upper Severn has a population of about 7,000, we have a small library and the Powysland Museum located in Y Lanfa, and of course the National Trust property, Powis Castle and gardens.  The majority of shops are small independents, and there are many thriving enterprises on our industrial estates.The surrounding area has much to offer in interest, heritage, culture and activities.

Events

Lots of events are arranged throughout the year; the Town Council organises the annual Fireworks display which is always a fantastic evening and enjoyed by the hundreds of families who attend. The Winter Festival attracts crowds of fun loving families – there’s always something special as well as switching on the lights, of course!
