There's nothing like a bold splash of colour to brighten the day just as the summer days are fading into memory. Tripadvisor have the tonic, picking Portmeirion as the most colourful place in the UK and in the top 10 in the world.

Tucked away in North West Wales is a dream like location. Most famous as a TV set (ask your parents), it was built to show that architecture can enhance the environment rather than spoil it. We think they succeeded. The best thing is, you can stay here in one of the 14 hotel rooms.

If you like to stimulate your other senses, take a trip to Portmeirion in September. Festival No.6 is on (don't worry you haven't missed the other five, it's only in its third year). An arts and music festival, attracting some of the biggest names around.
