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.)
The grounds are open daily until 19:30, so there is plenty of time to explore the village, gardens and woods. Free, guided tours of the village are available daily, with the last tour starting at 15:30.
