This unique village is set on its own private peninsula on the southern shores of Snowdonia. It was created by Welsh architect Clough Williams-Ellis (1883-1978) to demonstrate how a naturally beautiful place could be developed without spoiling it. Portmeirion is made up of about 50 buildings most of which are used as hotel or self-catering accommodation and surrounded by 70 acres of sub-tropical woodland gardens. On the main driveway is Castell Deudraeth, a Victorian mansion recently restored as a brasserie style restaurant and hotel.Portmeirion is one of Wales' premier visitor attractions, welcoming 250,000 visitors every year. With free parking,complimentary guided tours and audio visual show, six cafes and restaurants, half a dozen shops, gardens and beaches it is the perfect day out for all the family.Surrounding the village are 70 acres of exotic woodlands with easy to follow woodland trails and coastal walks. Portmeirion is open every day of the year from 9.30am to 7.30pm. We look forward to welcoming you.

Review

Portmeirion has been a tourist attraction for a number of years now and many generations of families have enjoyed walking through the streets of this famous Italianate village. I myself have visited here on many occasions and everytime feels like the first!.. The village has a strange pull on its visitors and its not hard to see why they return time upon time to these famous cobbled streets! People always associate Portmeirion with the Cult Tv series 'The Prisoner' but the site was a popular tourist destination long before the show started filming there and it's all down to the forward thinking of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis who started building and creating Portmeirion from 1925 to 1975 a strong testament to a strong minded man. I would highly recommend a visit to Portmeirion, and see for yourself what makes this place so special and why it leaves such a strong mark on all those who visit!
