Have you ever seen The Prisoner?

If you have you may recognise some of these pictures.

Portmeirion was built by sir Clough Williams-Ellis to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it. He wanted to show that architectural good manners could also be good business. He campaigned for the protection of the rural environment and fought for the beauty, "that strange necessity".

 

Inside portmarion

 

Portmeirion was built from 1925 to 1973 on its own private peninsula on the coast of Snowdonia. It has over 50 buildings of various styles and functions. There are shops, cafes, restaurants and great walks.

Surrounding the village are over 70 acres of sub-tropical woodland gardens where many rare exotic species thrive in mild climate, kept frost free thanks to the warming influence of the gulf steam.

Portmeirion is open daily all year from 9:30am to 5:30pm
