beware the Daleks in tiny U On a recent trip to Wales, a small group of journalists and I toured that extraordinary country, travelling from highlight to highlight, feasting our senses on great accommodation, food, culture, adventure and, always, the beauty of the land itself and the warmth of the people.
In front of it runs debonair actor Patrick McGoohan, playing a spy (aka No. 6) who has been drugged and carted off to an unknown location called The Village. No. 6 can run, but will he ever escape? A floral patterned set of china ever popular kate spade outlet jewelry since its launch in 1972. What do these images have in common? Both are linked to a very unusual coastal village. Portmeirion is the fantasy creation of eccentric architect Sir Clough Williams Ellis. In the early 1920s, after plunking down about 5,000 pounds for a "neglected wilderness" near his home, Williams Ellis began work on what would become his life long passion. The designer's motto was "Cherish the past, adorn the present, construct for the future." Williams Ellis did all these things, with bells on. The whimsical village in Gwynedd on the River Dwyryd estuary is about 3 km southeast of Porthmadog in northwest Wales. With Italian Riviera images dancing in his head and a flamboyant sensibility, Williams Ellis collected fragments from demolished buildings worldwide and liberally added fanciful details, lush sculpted gardens, arches and ponds, exotic plants and brought them to Portmeirion. The result is beyond playful, beyond over the top, but fun, fun, fun and meticulously maintained. As it was off season during our visit, the beach was empty but in summer it's packed with families having a day out, tourists strolling amid the popsicle coloured buildings, catching a little train through the forest above and beyond the main piazza. There's a gelato stand, a cafe with wood fired pizza, several restaurants and the pale blue estuary. It's even possible to stay the night in this magical environment. There are zero permanent residents in the village, only staff and visitors. If you've seen the TV cult series The Prisoner, you've already caught a glimpse of Portmeirion. It's probably the best known show to have filmed here, although many celebrities visited or stayed in the village before and after the 1967 68 sci fi delight. kate spade outlet line Wells, Noel Coward, Paul McCartney, Frank Lloyd Wright and Gregory Peck have all been to Portmeirion, and even another cult sci fi series Doctor Who stopped by to film an episode or land the TARDIS. McGoohan never returned to Portmeirion after The Prisoner wrapped kate spade purse deals after just 17 episodes, but the show's legacy lives on in annual events such as The Prisoner Convention and Festival No. 6. The Prisoner Convention, April 15 17, revels in reenactments and dress up. Uber fans of the show, 50 years old this year, will love it. Festival No. 6 is described as a "bespoke banquet," a lively arts. crafts and music gathering, taking place Sept. 1 4 this year. Oh, and the china pattern? The architect's eldest daughter Susan began a pottery in 1960 and later created the bestselling Botanic Garden collection. Portmeirion is run these days by a charitable trust called The Clough Williams Ellis Foundation, the designer having died in 1978, after living well into his nineties. Grandson Robin Llywelyn has written an ultra informative, multi picture guide book you'll want to pick up at the gift shop. DOCTOR WHO We travel from the northwest to the southeast of Wales, where another otherworldly vision awaits. The Doctor Who Experience first came to Cardiff in July 2012 and at the time was hosted by Doctor No. 11, fan fave Matt Smith. The voice and face of kate spade scallop bag the interactive exhibition now is the current Doctor, Peter Capaldi. The Experience hangar is on Porth Teigr's Discovery Pier, part of beautiful Cardiff Bay. There was a lot of buzz in the room as our group and about 30 tourists walked toward the blue police box known as the TARDIS, Capaldi (via taped video) urging us on. We put our hands on a control lever and together we "flew" the TARDIS through time and space. We all ran away with The Doctor! What goes on inside the TARDIS is a closely guarded secret and we, as companions of the Time Lord, cannot reveal details, but at one point we landed in November 1963, the very month the first episode of Doctor Who aired! After our adventure, which was fun (Capaldi is a sarcastically humorous regeneration of The Doctor), there are several large rooms filled with props and curios. Visitors can see and touch a complete line up of the doctors' costumes from 1963 to present day that famous long scarf worn by the fourth doctor, a bow tie, a question mark sweater, etc., all instantly recognizable to Whovians (as Doctor Who fans are called). There are also displays of the companions including Amy Pond, Clara Oswald and Rose Tyler. Check out The Face of Bo, Cybermen, umpteen Daleks (during my time in this room a little boy ran around yelling EX terminate, EX terminate), and other villains. There are TARDIS sets, too, including the console rooms of the ninth and 10th doctors (Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant). Whovians will be pleased to browse the good sized gift shop and then it's back to the sparkling revamped waterfront of modern day Cardiff, the capital of Wales. Your Doctor Who experience doesn't have to end though.
Much of the series was filmed in Cardiff and surroundings or at the nearby BBC studios. are all past film locations for the long running, ongoing series. While visiting Portmeirion, we stayed at the beautiful 17th century Bodysgallen Hall hotel in Llandudno, near the quaint town of Conwy.
