A must in Wales. So different and unique. A very beautiful place with some lovely little walks, a steam train and cute shops.

I have wanted to visit Portmeirion since watching the Prisoner in the 1970s.The village did not disappoint. It is a collection of mixed colourful Italian-style houses put together over many decades by the architect, Clough Williams-Ellis. We spent a whole day wondering around the village and the ajoining arboretum which has many unusual established trees which have numbered posts and we bought a trail guide to explain about each tree. There is also a little train which takes you around the arboretum if you don't fancy the climb. The lunch in the cafe was excellent.

I recently visited here as part of a trip to this beautiful part of wales and it didn't disappoint. The entrance price itself is reasonable considering the architecture & gardens etc that have to be maintained. The scenery itself overlooking the Afon Dwyryd bay is amazing and I would defiantly recommend a visit here. After visiting, I took a nice leisurely walk along the coastal path into Porthmadog via Boston Lodge Halt railway station & Britannia Terrance which takes about 45-60 minutes.

We visited the village of Portmeirion last week without really knowing what to expect. We didn’t realise it is a holiday village, or that we had to pay to enter and it was also smaller than we expected. Having said all that we spent a whole afternoon there, we immediately joined one of the 20 minute walking tours which was interesting, we then boarded the little train which took us in a 15 minute journey through the forest and up the hill. After that we followed the coastal walk route, the views across the estuary are beautiful (the tide was out when we arrived and in when we left) and the walk passes through the forest too. We arrived back in the village ready for a gelato (expensive for a family of 4 but nice ice cream and waffle cone). Our children then had a paddle in the fountain before we headed off. All in all it was a nice visit, pretty scenery and good walks.
