Portmeirion was created by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis from 1925 to 1976. He wanted to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it.
Aside from its iconic architecture, scenic surroundings and vast woodland gardens, Portmeirion is home to hip hotels, a huddle of historic cottages, a spa and award winning restuarants. During peak season (Late March to Late October), you can learn more about this unique village with free walking and train tours. The Visitor Centre is open all year and can help with more information, books and maps.
