Portmeirion

Standard

We spent the bank holiday weekend camping in Snowdonia National Park in Wales, beautiful but very wet!  We decided to visit Portmeirion, on the coast in Gwynedd, and, if you are going to do anything outside in the rain, this is surely one of the better things to do…

Used as the set for the 60’s television series ‘The Prisoner,’ Portmeirion was built by Clough Williams-Ellis to show how a beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it.  He started work in 1925 and spent 50 years building it.

 

In amongst the little shops there is so much detail hidden around the place…

I loved these roses on the gates to the garden…

The village is surrounded by woodland, which hides this beautiful Chinese Lake…
