Portmeirion is a village located on a private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay on the coast of Snowdonia, surrounded by woodlands and sandy beaches that was built between 1925 and 1976, by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who wanted to show how development could enhance the natural landscape.

It is a premier visitor attraction in Wales, and welcomes about 225,000 visitors every year! (Older visitors may be interested to know that the 1960s TV series ‘The Prisoner' was filmed here.)
