The series follows a British former secret agent who is held prisoner in a mysterious seaside village where his captors try to find out why he abruptly resigned from his job. "
The series was filmed in a village in North Wales called Portmeirion. Again, according to Wikipedia, "Portmeirion is a popular tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. 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.
Portmeirion has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously serving as The Village in The Prisoner starring Patrick McGoohan as Number Six."
Well, we've come to stay here in Portmeirion for a few days holiday, with some friends. We had lovely weather on Sunday, so I was able to get around and take loads of photographs of the village. Yesterday we took a trip up Snowdon (using the train I fear, not walking) and I took loads of photographs then too. I'll show you those next time I get online.
Anyway, here is the slideshow. If you're a devotee of the series you will recognise several of the locations used. But I've realised I haven't yet taken a photograph of the cottage allotted to Number Six, so I'll have to remedy that.
