Bangor Cathedral

Bangor Cathedral
The site of the present building of Bangor Cathedral has been in use as a place of Christian worship since the 6th century. The cathedral is built on a low-lying and inconspicuous site, possibly so as not to attract the attention of Viking raiders from the sea. Some visitors to Bangor assume that the Gothic style building on the hill is the cathedral, but this is actually part of the University.

Bangor Pier

Bangor Pier - Mennai Strait Opened to the public on 14 May 1896 the pontoon handled the pleasure steamers of the Liverpool and North Wales Steamship Company to/from Blackpool. Now Grade II listed, the pier is free to access, but there is an honesty box at the throat requesting that each walker contribute 50p to the pier's upkeep.
