In Gwynedd, North Wales, you’ll find the beautiful tourist village of Portmeirion. Built in the style of an Italian village between 1925 and 1975, it was designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and is now owned by a charitable trust.

In Salutation Square and Hercules Hall you’ll be able to watch a presentation narrated by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Outside of the presentation you’ll find a forest train giving a tour of the Gwylit woodlands and past the Chinese Lake.

There are plenty of options for walkers, with the walk to the Chinese lake taking you under the site of the old castle.

There are plenty of shops selling a variety of local produce and even a book shop for you to stock up on your holiday reading stash. The Blue Café serves authentic pizza, cakes, pastries and Italian beers and wine.

All in all, Portmeirion is a great place to take a day out and relax and take in the many sites.
