Portmeirion is an Italianate resort village on the coast of Snowdonia in Wales. Williams-Ellis designed and constructed the village between 1925 and 1975.
The village of Portmeirion has been a source of inspiration for writers and television producers – for example, Noel Coward wrote Blithe Spirit during his stay there. Famous visitors include Frank Lloyd Wright, Gregory Peck, Ingrid Bergman, Paul McCartney and Jools Holland.
Television series and films such as Danger Man, Doctor Who and Citizen Smith have filmed exterior shots at Portmeirion. The most famous series is The Prisoner, a surreal spy drama in which Portmeirion itself played a starring role as “The Village”. Due to its Prisoner connection, Portmeirion has been used for a number of homages to the series, ranging from comedy skits to an episode of the BBC documentary series – The Celts. Jools Holland starred in a spoof documentary, The Laughing Prisoner, with Stephen Fry, Terence Alexander and Hugh Laurie. In 2003 some scenes were filmed for the final episode of the TV series Cold Feet, and it was also used as the location for the Supergrass video – Alright.

  • Sorry – it’s in Portmeirion, Wales. It’s the model village which was built to ¾ scale of usual house size and was used in The Prisoner series.
