We went here on a gorgeous day, and thoroughly enjoyed it. For those that don't know Portmeirion Village was built by Clough Williams-Ellis who wanted to prove that development could be a positive thing, that beautiful buildings could be built that complimented the landscape.
We went here by train (get off at Minfordd) and walked into the village, as the roads are narrow there is a one way system. The walk was a bit long, but this only made the first glimpse of the village even more worthwhile. However on the way back we took a much shorter route, so if your walking and want a shorter route, go straight past Castell Penrhyndaedraeth and follow the road.
