Experience the magic of Portmeirion, the iconic Italianate Village at the southern gateway to the Llŷn Peninsula, where you can visit, stay, eat, shop, and relax. A visit to our tranquil idyll is surely one of North Wales’ most unique days out.
The village, which is close to Porthmadog, was built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and is symbolised by its iconic architecture. Set on its own peninsula, Portmeirion offers gardens and wild woodlands with sub-tropical plants and champion trees, and views over the Dwyryd Estuary with estuary coves that may be explored at low tide.
Portmeirion is home to 2 hotels, Village suites, a cluster of self-catering cottages, a motorhome site, shops, a spa, award winning restaurants and cafés.
Many visitors come to learn about Portmeirion’s fascinating story, including the filming of the infamous 1970’s Prisoner series in our visitor centre, listening to our audio show or downloading our award-winning App.
Spend the day wandering through the village, enjoying the facilities. We are literally a place like no other, where memories will be made – whether you’re visiting for the day with friends and family, or staying for a longer break.
