And what a beautiful place it is The rain stopped long enough for us to walk around without getting soaked, we even had a bit of sunshine! I've wanted to go for years and it was well worth the wait. It took Clough William Ellis 50 years to build and you can see it was a labour of love. Would thoroughly recommend a visit to anyone. Here's the website for more info - Portmeirion Was gutted however as I left my camera at home I had to make do with a bloody throw away one......and there were pictures to be taken everywhere you looked!!!!
