Travel Tips for Bangor

Bangor City

by lomi

"Bangor Now"

This town is not jumping with life for the tourist being one of the smallest cities in Britain.

But because of the university located here, there are many ancillary things to do, and usually in term time. ie A theatre, museum and art gallery, cathedral and lots of pubs and cheap cafe's.

There are some high street shops, (an M&S food hall and a large Debenhams) but it is the Cinderella of Wales' shopping, apart from Holyhead of course!

There is a railway station and bus depot, though a long walk between them.

"Old Bangor"

Bangor is one of Wales' oldest cities which grew up around a monastery in the 6th century. Its name comes from the protective fence or "bangor" that encircled the monastery. The present day cathedral was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, famed for London's Albert Memorial, and stands on the site of the early church.

Bangor also has a pier, which is the second longest in Wales and also the 9th longest in the British Isles, at 1,500 feet long. Originally built in the 1890s it fell into a poor condition, but it has been repaired and was reopened by the Marquis of Anglesey on 7th May 1988. It is considered to be one of the three finest surviving piers in Britain.


Bangor Mountain casts such a long shadow across the High Street, Glan Adda and Hirael areas, that from November to March some parts of the High Street receive no direct sunlight, it can make it look gloomier than it is.
