Have visited Portmeirion numerous times and it never fails to impress. So much to see from the interesting array of buildings & statues to the beautiful beaches and gardens.

Amazing views at every corner whether you stay in the village itself or wander round the numerous trails along the coast and inland.

For a whole day out the entrance fee is very reasonable and so were the prices in the cafe that we went in. If we didn't live so far away the annual pass would make it very cheap to visit numerous times throughout the year.

Highly recommended and we shall certainly be back!!!

What a hidden gem, beautiful buildings beautiful scenery, sea front location in the heart of snowdonia, not great if your unsteady on your feet as some dits are steep and rocky, plenty of steps but some fabulous views a good way to spend a couple hrs especially if weather is nice £12 entrance fee per adult, £8.50 kids family tickets £35

I have visited Portmeirion in the past and enjoyed the experience because I enjoyed "The Prisoner" tv programme. Returning about 25 years later I was very disappointed. Full price was in the region of £12.50 with a £2.00 concession for seniors. They have changed the village, put lots more shops and cafes all of which had very similar menus and prices. We went on the woodland drive more or less to get something for our entry fee. I feel it is very over priced for what there is there. Been back but won't be returning.

Hello there. Sorry to hear your were disappointed with your visit. As a charitable trust, we must charge an entrance fee to contribute toward the upkeep of the buildings, gardens and woodland. However, we do feel that we provide good value for money through the provision of free guided tours, train ride, video and seasonal exhibitions (including the current Sea Portmeirion exhibition in the Dome). I'm glad to hear that you took advantage of the train, but out of curiosity, did you take up the guided tour? We also offer a Prisoner tour in the afternoon for fans of the TV series.

Kind regards,

Jana

No entry to dogs! He’s only little, the weather was awful, not prepared to leave him in the car after such a long journey. So we went to the slate caverns instead. A shame to prevent such a large audiences visitors in this manner.
