Let’s Look at Lanterns – This, That, and the Other Thing

Portmeirion is a popular tourist village It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village and is now owned by a charitable trust.

The village of Portmeirion has been a source of inspiration for writers and television producers. For example, Noël Coward wrote Blithe Spirit while staying in the Upper Fountain suite at Portmeirion. In 1956 the village was visited by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and other famous visitors have included Gregory Peck, Ingrid Bergman and Paul McCartney. George Harrison celebrated his 50th birthday here. Musician Jools Holland visited whilst filming for TV music show The Tube, and was so impressed that he has had his studio and other buildings at his home in Blackheath built to a design heavily inspired by Portmeirion.

Television series and films have filmed exterior shots at Portmeirion, often depicting the village as an exotic European location. Examples of this include the 1960 Danger Man episode “View from the Villa” starring Patrick McGoohan, the 1976 four-episode Doctor Who story entitled “The Masque of Mandragora” set in Renaissance Italy, and an episode of Citizen Smith in which the eponymous hero visits Rimini. The town of Wiggyville in Cbeebies Gigglebiz is shot in Portmeirion as well.
Most famously it was as the set in the 1960s television show The Prisoner
