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!

Community

We are an active community with plenty to offer for people of all ages whether it’s sports, arts, well being or faith groups, Welshpool has something for everyone….or if we haven’t got you’re looking for, why not think about starting a new interest group?

Welshpool Services

The Town Council, with the support of a great team of volunteers runs an excellent Meals on Wheels service , all meals are freshly made using local produce whenever possible and delivered hot, in time for lunch each weekday. 

There are six playgrounds with a range of equipment and sports pitches at Maesydre, as well as knock about pitches at Dolyfelin and Burgess. The Tourist Information Centre and gift shop is located near the exit to the main car park and route through the town.
