Portmeirion Village, Snowdonia, Wales

Portmeirion is an Italianate resort village in Gwynedd, on the coast of Snowdonia in North Wales. Clough Williams-Ellis built Portmeirion from 1925 to 1975 on a peninsula off the coast of Snowdonia to show how 'the development of a naturally beautiful site need not lead to its defilement'. He fought for Beauty - "that strange necessity". Portmeirion has served as a location for many films and television shows, notably The Prisoner.

Number 2's house, The Dome. It would have been Patrick McGoohan's birthday on March 19th but he sadly passed away a few week ago. I've just spent a few days in Portmeirion - the Welsh village - used as a backdrop for the cult TV series, The Prisoner. And one is only left wondering, why on earth he ever wanted to escape this perfect idyll?!

A touch of irreality

Portmeirion "The stone boat at the harbour, won't be sailing anywhere today. While Hercules forever strains to support the weight, of the world outside the Town Hall. The watcher in the Bell Tower, looks across to The Pantheon. While Buddha directly below the dome, looks across to Lady's Lodge. Number 6 no longer lives in The Round House, but if you look out the window there, gilded Burmese dancers are reflected in the pond, of The Piazza, past The Bristol Colonnade. St.Peter on his balcony…

Evening at Portmerion, Gwynedd, Wales I stayed in the Tower a house, the one at the back

Portmerion - evening

One of the advantages in staying in the village, is to see it when the light fades and when all the day visitors have gone. Some of my night shots were a bit spoiled by over bright flood-lights but I managed to get a few decent shots. The shot above is looking though the gate to the town hall - the one in the comment, looking through the gate in the opposite direction, later that evening.
