Portmeirion features as part of a new Royal Mail stamp collection, depicting 26 landmarks across the country.

One of Wales' top visitor attractions, the North Wales village was created by architect Clough Williams-Ellis in a Mediterranean style starting in the early 20th century.

Huw Jones, Chair of Portmeirion Ltd, said "Portmeirion is known far and wide for its beauty and character and it is very appropriate that these stamps will carry that message across the world for everyone to enjoy."
