Bangor is a small city with a big backdrop – Snowdonia National Park, known as the most beautiful national park in the United Kingdom. The city of 12,000 in northwest Wales is not on most tourists’ itineraries, making it a window into an authentic kind of rural life that treasures both education and the environment.
Bangor is considered one of the U.K.’s best university locations, situated between the mountains of Snowdonia and the Irish Sea and offering some of the finest beaches and most beautiful scenery in the country. North Wales is an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet close to major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, so travelling to and from Bangor is easy, with London also easily accessible by direct train.
