Studying in Bangor is quite an exhilarating experience. Bangor, Gwynedd, is located on the coast of North Wales. It is conveniently within easy reach to the rest of the UK. Bangor is dubbed the Queen City, thanks to its magnificent location on the Penobscot River and the beauty of its buildings. Interestingly, Bangor is derived from bancor, an ancient Welsh word that translates to a wattle fence used for animal enclosures.
During the summer months, Bangor’s temperatures can reach 31°C, so staying close to the coast can be a good idea because it will feel a bit cooler.
