Bangor Etymology - Where Does the Name Bangor Come From?

Some people say “Bangor” is derived from “bancor”, an ancient Welsh word that translates to a “wattle fence” used for animal enclosure. Others say it’s named after pastor Seth Noble's favourite hymn “Bangor”.    

What Is Bangor famous for?

Bangor Location

Bangor is almost a 5-hour car ride from London with a 250-mile distance in between.

It is the oldest city in all of Wales. Established in 1886, it stood alone as the only city in Wales until 1905 when Cardiff came along. The small city is rich in history; its popular cathedral site goes back to the 6th century AD, and there are various beautiful castles along the coast dating back to the 13th century AD. The Bangor population has doubled on average thanks to the huge number of students who came to the city, including 10,500 students at Bangor University alone. 

Why choose Student Accommodation in Bangor?

Bangor is considered to be the smallest city in the UK, with a population of around 14,000. However, being a university town, the city has many provided facilities that will make your life easier. The city houses the Garth Pier, which is the second-longest pier in Wales, and the ninth longest in the British Isles. Walking along the pier is one of the best things to do in Bangor, Wales. The ‘Bangor Pier’ bus stop allows you to reach the pier with ease. 

Bangor Weather

Temperature

Generally, the weather in Bangor is warm and temperate. 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. August is the warmest time of year, although it is accompanied by a lot of rain, while January is the coldest with temperatures as low as 7°C. The sea highly influences the weather in North Wales.

What to Pack and The Local Timing

Living near the equator where summers are 40-ish and the coldest winter days are 20-ish, you’ll need a wardrobe makeover. Rain boots and jackets are a necessity in Bangor, thermals and scarfs are essential for day to day wear, and you must invest in heat preserving shoes. GMT is Aberystwyth local timing, keep this in mind when booking your flights and student accommodation in Bangor.

Is Bangor Rural or Urban?

Bangor is urban with a coastal flare where you can go to school in the mornings, have lunch at a restaurant overlooking the water, and have an evening walk on the pier. As a small town with lots of facilities, it is really great to have your student accommodation in Bangor.
