Broad Street/High Street


Welshpool holds many events, including a transport festival and a music festival. Groups of shops work together to provide entertainment and activities at the Winter Festival. Through a litter challenge scheme, each local shop is encouraged to look after its section of pavement and many businesses organise litter picks around the high street. To make Welshpool accessible to everybody, all public toilets have disabled facilities and street furniture has yellow banding for the visually impaired. Welshpool has a tourism website for visitors alongside a local news website and is active in promoting the town through social media channels.
