Bangor is a tiny coastal city in North Wales that is a gorgeous city with views of the Menai Straits (particularly beautiful at sunset) and also acts as a handy base for exploring the neighboring Snowdonia National Park. The city is also a popular overnight stop for passengers departing for Ireland on the Holyhead to Dublin ferry.
Bangor is one of the UK’s smallest cities, with a population of roughly 14,000 people. Bangor is a university town with a big student population and is home to Bangor University, which was founded in 1884.
Around half of the population in the city can speak Welsh, but if all University students were excluded, this proportion would be substantially higher.
