Welcome to Portmeirion


The village of Portmeirion in Northern Wales is as charming as they come, with rows of cottages and pretty trails winding through the woods. Portmeirion was designed by the architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, and is now run by a charitable trust more as a tourist attraction than a residential village. Its quaint demeanor has attracted film crews, and the 1960s cult tv programme The Prisoner was filmed there, among others. Small enough to see on foot, there are manicured gardens and a beach, as well as a few souvenir shops and a restaurant, ice cream shop, and pizzeria.
