Public transport to/from Portmerion

Hi

We're staying about 10 minutes away from Portmerion in Maentwrog, and would like to visit leaving the car at home.

Would it be possible to get taxis there and back? I'm not sure if many taxis are around in this area.

Or public transport - it would be on a Saturday in October.

Thanks

There's a reasonable bus service between Maentwrog and Minffordd (for Portmeirion) - takes 8 minutes

(Tan-y-Bwlch is near Maentwrog - the bus goes through both)

You could also make the journey on the Ffestiniog Railway

I know Portmeirion has it's own mini bus so it might be worth calling to see if they can pick you up from the station.

However, if you walk from the station to Minffordd and then up the old road (the road on the left parallel to the Portmeirion road where the sign is you get some lovely views of the estuary and Ynys Gifftan (the island in the estuary) and then turn up to the right when you pass a large house then next to a small house with a road next to it then you join the Portmeirion road and can see the Castle in front of you.

(You can carry on the old road to Portmeirion, but it was quite muddy a few days ago)
