Location

Jacky, our property recruiter at Wales Cottage Holidays, has been out and about again exploring the area around the university city of Bangor in North Wales. Here are Jacky’s top 7 things to see and do whilst on your holiday in the area:


Day 1: The small city of Bangor itself is worth a visit, with its cathedral dating from the 11th century, Storiel art gallery and museum, leisure centre, impressive Pontio art centre and cinema and the delightful Bangor Pier where you can take a lovely stroll to the end, with views over to Anglesey, and a little tearoom serving homemade cakes.


Day 2: Greenwood Forest park, just a few miles from Bangor, is the perfect family day out. It’s set in a lovely environment, with a people powered roller coaster, solar water slide, indoor play area and much much more!


Day 3: Lon Las cycle way goes from Porth Penrhyn in Bangor, following old railway cuttings through woodland right up to the stunning Ogwen Valley.


Day 4: The National Trusts Penrhyn Castle is on the outskirts of Bangor. It is a 19th century fantasy castle set in gorgeous grounds, with landscaped gardens, a play area, café and railway museum. Another must visit attraction in the area.


Day 5: For eating out during the daytime try the amazing Blue Sky Café in Bangor for homemade locally sourced produce, great teas and coffee, local beer and Gin and regular evening gigs and entertainment. Tyn Rhos country house hotel offers a 5* evening eating experience, advance booking required.


Day 6: The bridge to bridge walk (see on myviewranger.com ) takes in the two famous bridges crossing the Menai Straits, passing through woodland and with lovely views.


Day 7: Bangor is just on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park so it’s easy to access the mountains, lakes and stunning scenery that the park has to offer.
