Portmeirion

Portmeirion is one of North Wales' top visitor attractions with over 250,000 visitors every year.

Portmeirion is a tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village and is now owned by a charitable trust.

Portmeirion is open to day-visitors every day of the year, except Christmas Day. It is North Wales' premier visitor attraction. It is also the home of the fun and famous Festival No 6.

Portmeirion’s unique architecture and exotic gardens provide a wonderfully, dramatic setting and the 200 acre estate contains many interesting and unique features - lakes, woodlands, estuary, castles, farm buildings and fields.

It is best known as the location for the cult 1960s television series 'The Prisoner' filmed on location here during 1966 and 1967. However, this is just one of the many film shoots that have taken place at Portmeirion over the past 70 years from 'Doctor Who' to 'Cold Feet'.
