Bangor BID

Tourism & Leisure

We’ve lots of surprising things to see and do here. Bangor’s history stretches back to the sixth-century when Saint Deiniol built his monastery on the site of today’s Cathedral. 

Other fascinating historic sites to explore include a Grade II-listed Edwardian clock tower, a Grade II-listed memorial arch, a Grade II-listed Victorian pier, and two iconic nineteenth-century bridges.

Discover Bangor’s industrial heritage at Penrhyn Castle, seat of the Pennant family slate industry magnates, and visit the historic harbour of Porth Penrhyn, once a major exporter of slate. Outdoors, you can walk or bike the Wales Coastal Path, try a range of watersports, have a go on Europe’s longest zip line; or get your hiking boots on and explore the hills, mountains, forests and lakes of Snowdonia National Park, right on our doorstep. There are lots of things to keep our youngest visitors happy too, with family-friendly activities and attractions, and lots of Blue Flag beaches along our coastline. With so much to do, and accommodation of every type in and around Bangor, why not stay over?
