Ever since Monica from The Travel Hack blogged about the gorgeous village of Portmeirion I knew I needed to visit. So when my parents said they were going to north Wales for their holiday this year, I started plotted a way I would be able to gatecrash. They were staying a mere 20 minutes from the village and I figured if I didn’t go now, it would probably take me years.
Portmeirion is located in north Wales not far from Porthmadog and unlike most villages you have to park on the outskirts and pay to enter this gorgeous place. Adult entry is £12 and gates open at 9.30am. Once inside you can admire the gorgeous buildings, visit the boutique shops and grab food at a range of different eateries. It is also possible to stay here overnight as the village has its own hotel, however, I would imagine the price tag for this is rather large.
In my opinion Portmeirion is the perfect spot for lunch and a stroll. The village is beautiful and like nothing you’ll ever find anywhere else in Wales. It may even make your Instagram friends think you are in Italy. So if you aren’t already convinced about a visit here, check out my photos below to appreciate Portmeirion’s sheer beauty on a sunny day.
