Worth a visit. Bit of rain and a lot of mist made for an eeriness around the Village of Portmerion. Really enjoyed. Some of the staff could do with a smile though, especially those taking money at the entrance.

I had another magical visit to the Italianate village which was the location of 1960s cult TV series "The Prisoner". The last time I was here was three years ago when my family brought me here for a wonderful 50th birthday weekend stay at the Battery self catering apartment. This time it was just a few hours visit on my... More

We have been again and again to Portmeirion. What a wonderful place to visit. Even in January, it is welcoming and colourful. Staff are very helpful and friendly and the food is always first class.

A dull day exploring north Wales but visiting Portmeirion in mid December just filled us with sunshine!! Obviously very quiet but that made the visit more enjoyable!!! We were able to view the buildings and gardens at leisure, stroll the woods, watch the train taking the few children there to visit Santa's grotto, walk down to the waters edge and... More

Visited on New Years Day and rather annoyed to find that most of the place was shut. Nothing opened until 11am even though entry was from 09:30am. One café and one shop basically. No problem with this, but don't charge full price entry - you are just ripping visitors off! That said, we did enjoy our day there as the... More

FULL ENTRY PRICE NOT CHARGED! Portmeirion is a magical place full of iconic architecture, rare wildlife and interesting artefacts with events that take place through out the year. But during the low season a couple of our facilities like our free walking tours and woodland train trips are not available. That's why we don't charge children to come in and... More

Pleasant walk around the village and looked in some nice shops! However most of the buildings are for residential use and are not accessible - therefore areas that looked interesting to explore you couldn't! Wouldn't return!

We visited Portmeirion Village on a cold, sunny day in December when it was relatively quiet, which was ideal!

Spent the day (29.12.2016 at Portmeirion. This is our third visit but first time in the winter. It was a crisp and bright day and unusually warm for December. Always a warm and helpful welcome at the entrance The souvenir shops were open and the place was moderately busy. We split up as Lorraine likes to browse and I just... More

It was 8 pounds each to enter this weird and wonderful place and it's definitely worth seeing just for the strangeness of the place. The architecture is like something from Alice in Wonderland but it's quite a small place, aside from the hike through the woods. There are some nice shops here but it's not somewhere where you'd spend a... More
