The Most Instagramable Place in Wales…

If you love photography, quirky places, and exploring some where unusual yet beautiful, you’ll love Portmerion. Located in North Wales it’s probably a little out of the way for most, but it’s one of those must see places in the UK that’s well worth a visit.

Before arriving we didn’t realise there’s no actual permanent residents in the village, it’s like a little holiday resort. It cost £12 to get in, but it’s a fab day out and a fee I wouldn’t mind paying again.

We started off our 5 hour stay – yes we loved it that much! With a 20 minute tour guided by a lovely member of staff. We learnt more about the history of Portmerion and the inspiration behind the Italian-esque architecture. From there we actually noticed there was a wedding, of-course I stopped to see the bride… If you’re looking for a fairytale style wedding I couldn’t think of anywhere better! We then went down to the beach and walked along the Quayside towards the light house, the views over the river towards Llechollwyn were stunning – luckily we picked a clear day to visit!

Of-course me being me we had to scout out some picture opportunities, in the main village there was a little area with pink/ peachy buildings which was just perfect. Just around the corner was another beautiful spot with the most amazing flowers and fountains. Where ever you looked high or low there was something amazing, so much attention to detail.

Whilst there we had lunch at Caffi Glas, it’s a little Italian within the Portmerion Village. They had so much to offer on the menu but we went for a couple of light bites and a cheeky glass of prosecco –  a lovely little afternoon treat. The service was fab and just added to our already amazing experience.

I think with this post the pictures do the talking. I’ll definitely be heading back to Portmerion in the future – possibly autumn time as I think it will make the perfect location for outfit posts.
