Portmeirion Village Questions & Answers

Hello. We are thinking of visiting in July - we have a 3 and 8 year old, would this be a suitable place to visit please? Is there enough to keep children of that age occupied or would you say it’s more suitable to adults/couples please? Thank you.

There is almost nothing for young children in Portmeirion so I think it would NOT be a suitable place to bring them for more than perhaps one day. The place is like stepping back in time, and that's the attraction as far as we are concerned, i.e. it's not 'full if children'. Sorry.

Its more to do with being a fan of the old tv series, the prisoner.However its quite an eye opener.Its more for adults than children i would say.

I agree it’s more for adults, lots of steps steep climbs too ( if your taking a pushchair )

8 year old probably ok but honestly don't think suitable for 3 year old. Can't think of anything they could do

The only child thing is the train ride. Not on rails but on the road through the woods

Apart from the very large chess set display which they might like to look at, I wouldn't say this place is suitable for children. Nothing for them to do. I was very disappointed Having visited it in the 1900's it has been changed and not for the better as far as I'm concerned.

Hi, personally I would say it's more adult orientated.

It depends a lot on the children? There are no real activities for them but there are a lot of nice walks if they are interested in views and nature. There is a visitors train that they may enjoy. When we were there we did see families with children of various ages.

There were a lot of children when we were there.... it depends what they like doing.. there’s a 20 minute free train ride around the woods, a walk around the coast, the beach when the tide is out,woodland walks as well.. hope this answers your question..

Hi there, as we are a couple in our 50’s I wasn’t really paying attention to kids activities but bearing that in mind I didn’t notice too much. However there is a lovely outdoor swimming pool which would be great if the weather was good. The weather was great when we were there and there were some kids in the pool but other than that I didn’t see too many kids about. Sorry I can’t be of any more help.

Other than a small, heated outdoor pool, there isn’t anything at Portmeirion for youngsters. There are lots of steps, so would be difficult with a pushchair. However, it is a beautiful place, and there are lots of nooks and crannies to explore. There were a small amount of children there when we visited, but whether these were staying there or day visitors, I couldn’t say.

I agree with the other answers. Worth a visit but not easy terrain. Portmadoc with some lovely steam trains and a pleasant town. A little harbour with places to seat may suit you better.

I would say it's more of a place for adults, there is a short train ride (which is free) but that's about all. Steep hill so not easy going.
