Portmeirion - a favourite with Selwyns Day Trips

One of the big draws for day trippers, other than the spectacular architecture, are the beautiful gardens. The gardens in and around the village have been cultivated since Victorian times. Original specimen conifers, Wellingtonia and Himalayan Firs remain. The gardens are also home to a Tulip Tree, a massive Variegated Sycamore and a Weeping Silver Lime which scents the Village in August.

The 60s tv series The Prisoner was filmed in Portmeirion.
