Top 10 ten places to visit in Wales - Conwy and the Llyn Peninsula


Perhaps best known as 'The Village' in the 1960's cult British TV series The Prisoner, Portmeirion was the brainchild of eccentric architect Clough William Ellis, and his dream was to build an ideal village using a 'gay, light opera sort of approach.' The result is certainly theatrical: a stage set with a lucky dip of buildings arranged to distort perspectives and reveal tantalizing glimpses of the seascape behind.
Endangered structures from all over Britain and abroad were brought here and incorporated into buildings painted in pastel shades of turquoise, ochre and buff yellow. 
Portmeirion welcomes visitors both for the day and to stay the night, either in the Hotel Portmeirion on the shore, in the cottages that make up the village, or in Castell Deudraeth overlooking the estuary.
