Welcome to Bangor, the friendly city on the North Wales coast. Though small in size, we’re big on character, thanks to our unique mix of Welsh language and culture, our seafaring heritage and the visitors from all over the world who come here to stay and study.
Twinned with the German city of Soest since 1973, Bangor is a great place to discover new things. Visit the tomb of a medieval prince in our Cathedral; fish off the second-longest pier in Wales; go shopping on Wales’ longest high street; feel the drama at the arts centre, or catch the stunning views from our 18-hole hilltop golf course. There’s so much to do in Bangor, and a whole lot more to explore in Snowdonia and along our gorgeous coastline; come and discover why Lonely Planet rates North Wales as the 4th top region in the world to visit.
