Portmeirion is a place that is entirely unique. Its nearest equivalent is somewhere on the Ligurian coast of Italy. Many of the features and architectural styles of the buildings and colours are only seen in that part of the world.

The Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn in Welsh) is situated off the north-west coast of Wales near the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range. It is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait, which is spanned by two picturesque bridges. Anglesey was known as Mam Cymru ('Mother of Wales') during the middle ages because its fertile fields formed the breadbasket for the north of Wales. Anglesey also has the village with the longest place name in Britain:
