There are lots of reviews about Porthmeirion but this is just about disabled access and complements the review I wrote.

The main car park is a few minutes walk from the village but there is a limited amount of disabled parking by the Tollbooth ticket office and another two disabled spaces by the hotel.

Wheelchairs are available to borrow from the Tollbooth.

The main areas of the village are accessible with well graded tarmac surfaces. There is wheelchair access to most building s except the Audio Visual theatre.

There are however steep and uneven footpaths around the village which are unsuitable for wheelchairs.

The shore footpath beyond the hotel is wheelchair friendly but paths from the village up to the woodland are steep and rough. Many of the woodland footpaths may not be suitable for wheelchair users.

There is a wheelchair accessible plan of the village here
and one can be picked up from the ticket office.

During the summer months, a land train does a 30 minute tour of the woodlands and village. There is no space for a wheelchair as the train can only take foot passengers.

There are disabled toilets by the entrance, main square, hotel and in the Town Hall.
