Portmeirion is only about 2 miles away.

travel by bus to Porthmadog and then by taxi to Portmeirion, or by taxi from Bangor direct
to Portmeirion. The cost and arrangements are for the travellers individual
C: from London and across country via Birmingham the train route passes through
Shrewsbury and continues westbound until the coast of Wales is reached. Continuing
northwards, the rail route passes through Barmouth and Harlech, with a stop at Minffordd
(see above information for remaining short journey from Minffordd to Portmeirion).
The main line rail stopping point at Minffordd is separate from the narrow gauge
