Portmeirion, Portmeirion, Minffordd, LL48 6ER – Visit Now

Portmeirion was created by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis from 1925 to 1976. He wanted to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it – and hoped the village would make people think about buildings in the landscape.

The village was built as a place people could enjoy for its own sake. It was supposed to be a place where events, concerts and exhibitions could take place.
