Portmeirion was designed and built in the Italianate style by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between the 1920s and 1970s, with colourful, elaborate buildings.
A charitable trust now owns the village, and it’s a tourist attraction with hotels, holiday cottages, eateries and shops.
There are beautiful coastal walks and woodland gardens
Portmeirion has inspired writers and TV producers and has been used for exterior TV and film shots and music videos.
Probably the most famous of these was The Prisoner with Patrick McGoohan in the 60s.
