Welcome to Bangor
Welcome to Bangor - The city of the “Smallest”
Bangor is a small coastal city in North Wales, and although it does not have an abundance of attractions, it is a picturesque place offering views over the Menai Strait (especially attractive at sun-set), and also serves as a convenient base for visiting the nearby Snowdonia National Park. The city is also a popular place to spend the night for travellers leaving for Ireland on the Holyhead to Dublin ferry. With a population of only around 14,000, Bangor is one of the UK's smallest cities.

Temperatures in Bangor vary from 7 degrees Celsius in January to 18 degrees Celsius in July. If you don’t like the summer heat you might want to stay on the coast where an ever blowing sea wind makes it feel cooler. However, if the wind comes from the interior temperatures may get as high as 31 degrees Celsius; winds usually come from the sea, though. During the winter temperatures are being influenced by the sea.
Bangor offer various public transports to move in the city, like buses, coach and trains.
