The Village, Shops and Gardens

Portmeirion is an Italianate style village which is situated on its own peninsula on the coast of Snowdonia with 70 acres of wild woods, sub-tropical gardens and beach coves ready to explore.

The village was built by Welsh architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis from 1925 to 1976. He wanted to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it. Today Portmeirion is one of Wales' premier visitor attractions, welcoming over 200,000 visitors every year.
