Historic Site
An "Italian" village on the coast of North Wales, Portmeirion Village is a fantasyland built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975. The village's playful architecture is painted bright colors and offset by thick, green foliage. Inside these buildings you'll find hotels, restaurants, boutiques, and everything else you'd expect from a Mediterranean holiday, including a nearby body of water. Get great views of the village from the central piazza and check out Battery Square for some laid-back souvenir shopping.

  • I have been coming back to "The Village" for many years. The cottages are all so different and the views are unbelievable. The staff are friendly and helpful. If you stay in any of the cottages you will see even more unique features. Now there are even places for day visitors to buy food and drink other than the Castle or the Hotel. Ice cream is made and sold in the village.
  • Nice place! Shops pricey, but decent cafe half way around. Probably a few hours worth of entertainment, but nicer in sunny weather. Worth the walk along the coast when you get there.
  • Town Hall cafe food was really good, with good portion sizes. Sadly shops were selling overpriced tat. Coastal walk was good but all in all the weather did bring a damper to proceedings as sections were closed off and the woodland train wasn't running.
  • An interesting place to visit, with stunning scenery to explore as well as the intricately designed town. Good selection of shops and restaurants as well. I would highly recommend a visit.
  • beautiful area. visited a few years ago after my grandparents showed me the prisoner tv series. its a great place to look around for whatever reason you have, whether that be to see the port from the series or simply a day out in a beautiful small village. just beware of the killer weather-balloons!
