Photographs from Our Visit to Portmeirion


The Unicorn is one of the examples of little architectural tricks Sir Clough Williams-Ellis used in creating Portmeirion. The arches on ground level are much less than six foot tall and do not lead into the mansion as the ground is sloped and the windows on the presumable second floor are elongated and thin to give an illusion of greater height to the building.


Unicorn (Yr Uncorn)


From the perspective from the resident car park area for some of the hotel suites and cottages above the Village Green, the reality of the Unicorn can be observed in the photograph below, as the mansion is just two hotel room suites.
