After travelling for an hour, we pulled into the car park where we noticed a sign that said 'Dogs Not Allowed'. Very annoyed as there was no mention of this on a leaflet we picked up. Complete waste of time and petrol.

A magical and quirky day out: even if you've never seen "The Prisoner"! Best seen on a day when the sky is blue, but the village is so colourful in its own right it will put a smile on your face.

I first saw The Prisoner as a young lad and, although I didn't understand what was going on, even then I found the location fascinating. So, nigh on 50 years later I eventually got to visit the place. I wasn't disappointed. This is just a...More

I've always wanted to visit Portmeirion after growing up with Patrick McGoohan as The Prisoner, and it did not disappoint. It probably helped that the weather was glorious, but I think the entire village would probably mesmerise even in the rain. The visit included a...More

This Italianate style village was created by architect Clough Williams-Ellis (1883-1978) who visualised a development without spoiling the beautiful environment.

All areas are accessible with a pram. However, there are some steep hills and uneven paths.

The ground is even under foot but it is very hilly. There lots of steps and hills which my daughter in law found difficult to manage although she still went back a second time. Hope this helps.
