The Statue of Nelson at Portmeirion

Portmeirion is a local visitor attraction that is famous the world-over due to the fact it was used as ‘The Village’ on ‘The Prisoner’ TV series in the 1960s. The Italianate village was created by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and his death in 1976 and it’s now one of Wales’ largest visitor attractions with 250,000 visitors every year. It has six cafes and restaurants, half a dozen shops, seventy acres of exotic woodlands with easy to follow woodland trails and coastal walks. The name lives on with the increasingly popular ‘Festival No.6’ annual music event held in the village every year. Clough lived at nearby Plas Brondanw and his beautiful landscaped gardens are also open to the public.
