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 in sub-tropical gardens and vast woodlands, with views over the Dwyryd Estuary, visitors enjoy forest, garden and sandy beach walks.
Portmeirion is home to 2 hotels, a cluster of self-catering cottages, 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 & audio-visual show.
Spend the day wondering through the village, enjoying the facilities or simply taking the free train ride during high season. 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.
