Travelling around Bangor
Bangor can lay claim to being the oldest city in Wales and one of the smallest in the UK. Located on the north-west coast of Wales it boasts stunning views across the Menai Strait and is an ideal base from which to explore the nearby Snowdonia National Park.
Bangor makes up for its relative lack of size with a genuine sense of excitement and vibrancy. Much of this can be put down to the presence of more than 10,500 students attending Bangor University.
The fact that Bangor is located on the North Wales Coastal Line means it is easily reachable by rail from both within Wales and the rest of the wider UK. Arriva bus routes also run through Bangor and on to places nearby, such as the transport hub of Holyhead and the tourist centre of Beaumaris.
