Bangor is a small city in Gwynedd.

Understand

Bangor is a small coastal city in North Wales, and is a picturesque city offering views over the Menai Straits (especially attractive at sunset), and also serves as a convenient base for visiting the nearby Snowdonia National Park.

With a population of only around 14,000, Bangor is one of the UK's smallest cities. Bangor is a university city and has a large student population, and is home to Bangor University, established in 1884.

Around half of the people in the city can speak Welsh, but if you took away all of the students in the university, this figure would be much higher.

See

  • Bangor Pier, +44 1248 352421. Also known as Garth Pier, this Victorian pier opened in 1896 and reaches halfway across the Menai Straits to the Isle of Anglesey. At the end of the pier is the Whistlestop Cafe, which is popular and well-known locally for its scones. Garth Pier on Wikipedia

It has a shop, tea room, a doll museum, two galleries and an industrial railway museum. Can be considered well over the top in the desire to impress but the kitchen quarters and the walled garden are particularly to be recommended. £11.50, £5.75 for children. Penrhyn Castle on Wikipedia

St. Maryʹs Church, Beaumaris

Beaumaris (Welsh: Biwmares) is a town in east Anglesey in Wales. Beaumaris's shore borders the Menai Strait separating Anglesey from the British mainland. Its population is somewhere around 2000 people. The town is full of history and many historical sites are still able to be visited today.

Understand

History

Beaumaris and its castle was built by the Norman kings of England. King Edward I began construction on this castle in 1295. French builders called the castle beaux marais meaning "beautiful marshes", since the castle was built on a marsh foundation. This is one of the largest fortresses in Wales and the last created by Edward I. However, construction was never completed and only saw a little combat during the 17th century Civil War. Had it been finished it was fixed to be one of the grandest ever built.
