Welshpool[1] (Welsh: Y Trallwng) is a town in Powys, Mid Wales.

Get in

By Car

Welshpool is at the cross-roads of the A483 (north/south) and the A458 (east/west). The A458 connects to the UK Motorway network at the M54 near Shrewsbury

By Rail

Welshpool is on the Shrewsbury to Aberystwyth line.

By Air

Light aircraft can use Mid Wales Airport, just to the south of the town.

By Water

The Montgomery Canal passes through the town. Currently, a few miles either side of the town are navigable, but restoration work continues on the rest of the canal.

Get around



  • Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway[2]. This steam-hauled, narrow gauge railway links Welshpool with the village of Llanfair Caireinion, 8.5 miles away.
  • The Offas Dyke Path national walking trail passes through the town. This is a long distance walking trail following the length of the England/Wales border from Prestatyn to Chepstow
