Hotels in Bangor
Bangor is a compact and family-friendly city with a seaside town atmosphere in the north-west of Wales. Home to a university and several colleges, it has a youthful energy and plenty of places to eat and drink. The selection of accommodation in Bangor is diverse and mostly central, with the choice of B&Bs, boutique hotels, lodges and recognisable chains. Choose to stay nearer to Bangor Gwynedd train station for trips to and from Holyhead, or book into a room by the coast for breathtaking sea views.
Nature and architecture
Bangor and the surrounding area are home to many parks and woods, historic buildings and cultural points of interest. One of the most famous is the Menai Strait between mainland Wales and Anglesey, located west of the city centre. It's spanned by Robert Stephenson's Britannia Bridge, which dates back to 1850. As Bangor is one of the smallest cities in the UK, it's easy to spend a leisurely day strolling from sight to sight.
Penrhyn Castle is a National Trust property, and is actually a fortified manor house in the style of a Norman castle. It's east of the town and surrounded by greenery, including sprawling Penrhyn Park.
In the town centre, take a moment of reflection at Bangor Cathedral and admire the stained glass windows and tributes to Saint Deiniol.
A walk down Bangor Pier afterwards is ideal for getting some crisp sea air and a beautiful view of Anglesey. It's the second longest pier in Wales. For the curious, it's also just a short trip over Britannia Bridge to the town of Llanfairpwyngyngll – full name Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoc. Take a souvenir photo or two next to the road sign – it's the longest place name in Europe.
Food and drink
You'll be pleasantly surprised at the range of cuisine on offer in Bangor. Whether you're in the mood for some Asian flavour or a taste of the Mediterranean, there's a restaurant for you.
Have a plate-smashing good time at the Greek Taverna, or try traditional seaside fish and chips at The Fat Cat Café Bar. There are, of course, many more to experience, and numerous restaurants and bars sit right on the coast.
On light summer nights, the beer garden at The Albion Hotel has a welcoming ‘local pub' atmosphere everyone can enjoy. Peep Nightclub just down the road is a popular choice for night owls.
Shopping in Bangor
A number of big brands have stores in the town centre, joined by local traders. The Deiniol Shopping Centre houses close to 25 retail units, with fashion, food, mobile phones and new glasses under one roof.
For souvenirs, pop into one of the small shops and kiosks along the pier. Alumni of Bangor University can pick up more academically-themed gifts and items from the alumni shop on campus.
