Portmeirion and Gardens, beautiful Italianate village in Wales

Portmeirion is home to a 70 acre sub-tropical forest with 20 miles of paths, hidden lakes, temples and breath-taking views.

Portmeirion and Gardens a beautiful Italianate village created by Clough Williams-Ellis overlooking the sea in Wales

The first plantings at Portmeirion Gardens, were in early Victorian times. Henry Seymour Westmacott in the late 1850's was responsible for most of these.
There are woodland gardens, sub-tropical plants, giant yuccas, palms, tree ferns as well as formal borders and small lakes.
Rhododendrons and Azaleas are one of the main attractions with the peak in May. A land train will take you around the woodland gardens if you prefer not to  walk.

If you have time the nearby historic home of Clough Williams-Ellis at Plas Brondanw  has beautiful gardens in Italianate style and we highly recommend you visit them.
