Visit Portmeirion

Portmeirion is a top tourist attraction in North Wales, situated 2 miles south of Porthmadog in the village of Penrhyndeudraeth.  The Village was designed and constructed by Welsh Architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975.

Surrounding the village are over 70 acres of gardens and woodlands with lakes and miles of pathways.  There is an important collection of rhododendrons and other exotic plants to be found in a wild-garden setting, this ws started before Williams-Ellis' time by the previous owner George Henry Caton Haigh and has continued to be developed since his death.

Portmeirion has served as a location for films and television shows, most famously serving as the Village in The Prisoner.

Also famous is Portmeirion Pottery, created and designed by Susan Williams Ellis the daughter of Sir Clough Williams Ellis.  There are many designs of Portmeirion Pottery to be found but the most recognised design is the Botanic Garden which was launched in 1972.
