Bangor, located in Gwynedd, is situated in Wales on the coast. This picturesque town is fairly small but is the ideal place to relax and unwind. The town offers excellent views of the Menai Strait, particularly at sunset and is also an ideal base if you plan to visit Snowdonia National Park, which is located nearby. In addition, many people choose to stay in Bangor as a stopping place before leaving for Ireland on the Dublin ferry. There are ample cafes, restaurants and eateries in Bangor to enjoy during your stay.
Bangor is a Welsh town and it is known to be one of the smallest towns in the United Kingdom. The reason behind its modest population is that it is a university city with a population of fewer than 15,000. Apart from these natives there are more than ten thousand students registered at the Bangor University. Still the town has much to offer to the tourists as it maintains a much enriched history of the middle ages.
Penryn Castle covers a huge area and truly reflects the taste and vigor of its long gone owners. It was built around two centuries back that is why it still keeps all the necessary details to this date. All the interior of the castle is open to the public and to attract the tourist several hundred paintings are kept inside of the building. Every section of the castle is kept in outstanding order that one can roam through all the servant rooms and kitchens within a few hours.
There is an adjacent museum that keeps the records and artifacts of the relevant period of time. Moreover the gardens which are kept in their original shape are accessible to the public for any event. They can be booked with the aid of local administration and any event can be celebrated in this magnificent environment.
There are many rail services that offer unmatched views of the hills which one can rarely enjoy by taking a car, or on foot. The experience of viewing the mountains from the railway is simply matchless.
