Portmeirion, a stunning Italianate village, was brought into being by Clough Williams-Ellis [1883-1978], who had it built on his own private peninsula on the coast of Snowdonia National Park. Clough was deeply committed to the conservation of rural Wales, and spent much of his time campaigning for the protection of the environment. His motto was: “Cherish the past, adorn the present, construct for the future.”
250,000 visitors come to Portmeirion every year and the admission fee [currently £10.00 adult] contributes to the upkeep of the village and gardens.
Please take a stroll with me around this fabulous wonderland.
