Record breaker at Portmeirion

by Webmaster, 6th March 2019

Crowds flocked to the North Wales village, which offered free entry on St David's Day

The Italianate village of Portmeirion is popular at any time of year, but never more so than on St David's Day this year.

Visitors not only enjoyed free entry, but also free guided tours and an audio-visual show.

Those in attendance couldn't help but be amazed by the 3,000 daffodils that have been planted by the gardening team there. 

“It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying the village and celebrating St David’s Day,” says Portmeirion’s marketing manager, Jana Jones. “The response from visitors has been wonderful and we hope everyone has had an enjoyable experience with us. The day was a huge success and we look forward to carrying that momentum with us through the rest of the year.”

Portmeirion was built between 1925 and 1975 by Sir William Clough Ellis, and its unique style, similar to that of an Italian village, attracts people the world over. It's home to two hotels, a spa, shops, restaurants, cafes and an Italian ice cream parlour.
