3 miles from Porthmadog
Portmeirion © Crown copyright (2013) Visit Wales
The unique and famous Italianate village built by the architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. The village is reduced in scale, like a diorama, giving the impression of large size in a moderate space. It became famous as the set for the television series The Prisoner, starring Patrick McGoohan, who was Number 6. Portmeirion is halfway between Porthmadog and Penrhyndeudraeth and located on a rugged cliff top on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay and is surrounded by subtropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches. The walks are well worth the visit.
