Portmeirion Wales, the most colourful vibrant village in the UK


The title of the post gave it to you that this colourful piece of geography, Portmeirion, is in the UK otherwise most whether from UK or elsewhere would have struggled hard and in all probability said this place is in Italy or Greece.

We stopped at Portmeirion for 5-6 hours while visiting Wales. And i have to admit that i was absolutely awe struck and couldn't believe that such a vibrant, colourful and unique village that had Italy written all over it was actually part of the UK. The United Kingdom surprises you beyond bounds if you dare to explore. 
1. A bit of history - Portmeirion is a tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village

2. How to get to Potmeirion- Its a perched in so does not have its own train station. The nearest one is   Minffordd station which has connections from all parts of the UK.  From Minffordd, Portmeirion is a 20 min walk.  If staying in The Portmeirion hotel you can ask for a free shuttle from Minffordd station. You can easily find out the best route for your time of travel on Google maps or  Rome2rio.

3. There is an entry fee to get inside the village which i didn't expect. The village is maintained by a charity and the entry fees goes into the maintenance and welfare of the village. 

4. On the coastline of Wales it one of the best seaside places to holiday in the UK. A great place to honeymoon as well in the UK. The Portemeirion hotel is right on the waterfront but i am sure you can find fab airbnbs in the village. 

5. Their are a few open air small restaurants and tea rooms in the village. The food is good. Definitely satisfy the hungry tourist. We reached at about 12 and after a bit of exploring had an Italian lunch. Then explored a bit more and had tea. There are many gelato shops too.

6. Wander around the streets soaking into all the ornate Italian touches. Beautiful manicured gardens with the loveliest flowers. Rolling hills on one side and coastline on the other. One can spend hours and hours in this lovely paradise but just for reference,  at a stretch you can cover the whole village in about 2 hours or so. 

7. We also went on a group hiking trail further deep in the village. Surrounded by loads of fauna and ended it at a beautiful lake which seemed like in the middle of nowhere. 

8. Near the coastline is a beautiful structure of white and blue which reminded me of Greece actually. 

9. There is a cave trail as well near the coastline, quite fun for kids. 

10. Portmeirion is an absolute heaven for Instagrammers. Just look at the spots. 

11. You can also do some shopping of beautiful pottery when there.

We were in Portmeirion for 5-6 hours and were able to check out the whole village, take beautiful pictures and also have lunch plus tea. Definitely like a definite one to add to your itinerary when visiting wales. And A MUST VISIT PLACE in the UK that also deserves to be chosen for a night or two of relaxation.  Portmeirion, truly special, well deserves a spot in top colourful  places to visit in Europe.

  2. I am welsh and live in Cardiff and am ashamed to say I've never been to Portmeirion, despite knowing many people entranced by it. Your pictures are absolutely going to be responsible for me changing that ASAP, I cannot quite believe what a beautiful place it is. Seeing you there with your siren's hair felt fitting with so much whimsy around.
