Good outdoorsy areas especially for those more adventurous. Excellent nearby facilities to fulfill kayaking, climbing, bouldering, mountaineering etc. not much to do in Bangor itself other than shopping if you live a more sedate lifestyle, however there are plenty of pubs with pool tables and a couple of cinemas.

Value for money in Bangor is insane, it is easy to live off £20 a week and that is one of the main reasons I love it there so much. A night out does not need to cost upwards of a tenner through getting in on a ticket and luxuriating in the drinks offers cube or academi have to offer. Bangor boasts a host of cheap supermarkets making food shopping inexpensive. Bangor also hosts a range of places to eat out the best ones being Noodle One, Blue Sky and The Fat Cat all conveniently located on the high street.

Great variety of places that are student-friendly for food, plenty of shops which are close by. Beautiful views in a gorgeous city, there's a pier, stunning woodlands and the menai straights!

To rent a room it is quite cheap starting from £65 a week onwards. The location is great, there are loads of things to do in town. The night club The Cube has been recently refurbished and there are 4 different rooms , with different music. It is along the coast so there are a few lovely beaches when the weather is hot although a lot of the time it's raining and cold.

Asides from the fact it's about as secluded as cities (yep, that cathedral in the centre means it's a city) get in the UK, Bangor offers students the chance to experience life in North Wales. Beaches, mountains, rivers and forests - you'll just need to find a friend with a car because the public transport is awful.

Bangor University is located in the most amazing city in the UK. Bangor is the smallest city, located right on the banks of the Menai Straights, and has a gorgeous backdrop of the mountains of Snowdonia. There are a wide variety of shops going down the sides of the longest high-street in the UK, and plenty of different places to eat, from comfy pubs, to noodles, and many small cafés. Although there are only two night clubs, everyone that visits them has the best nights out, and the clubs are accessible by foot within a few minutes from the city centre. As for entertainment, there is the Pontio centre opposite the city centre, where there are comedians, theatre shows, nights at the orchestra, the cinema and more! If that wasn't enough, it only takes a few pounds to hop on a train to Llaandudno Junction, where you can find a larger cinema, or to Llandudno itself, where there is a ski slope, pier, beach and a larger town centre with many high-street shops, and quaint sea-side holiday gift and sweet shops. I can safely say that when I accepted my offer to Bangor University, I had no idea exactly how much I would fall in love with the University and the city it thrives within.

Bangor is a quaint city on the banks of the Menai straights. It is predominantly a student city with plenty of pubs and bars to keep yourself hydrated. The high street consists of a verity of shops and cafes, ranging from big name brands to smaller local businesses. The city’s football club also has a healthy following, a couple hundred fans watch every game at the stadium which is located on the outskirts of town. They also offer discounted tickets for students, the perfect way to spend your Friday nights before heading out for a big night in town. The main club is Cube which is by far the busiest in the city. Two floors of music and bars and a huge dance floor to match. Bangor is a perfect place to spend your years of studying if you’re looking for a small, quiet welsh city.

Nights out are surprisingly rich and full of diverse options despite Bangor being such a small city. The location is so beautiful and perfect for those aspiring to be a zoologist or just someone who loves being lost in nature. The high street has a good range of shops which supplies ones every need with every business having at least one rival company to make for quite competitive pricing. Alcohol is extremely cheap too. I’d average a pint to be £2.50 which is 50% cheaper than the majority of the south of England, especially London. Transport could be much better. The bus system is not very impressive but still very affective. One can get a direct train from Bangor to London which allows for a lot of freedom to go wherever you want on weekends.

I love bangor as I love the outdoors, it’s right by the mountains and the beach so there is an adventure to be had every weekend, there is also a high street with most of the shops you would want whilst at university, and a pretty decent nightlife. There were many underground music events every month which is great for me

With its location being basically within the mountains it is perfect for students that enjoy nature and travelling. The only downside is it's lack of life and anything other than students

In terms of getting to other places within the UK, Bangor is quite removed and hard to reach. However, the surrounding area is so gorgeous and if you're into walking, hiking, surfing, boating or swimming, Bangor is ideally located for you!

The nights out are somewhat decent- only 3 clubs in the town but this is decent considering the size of the town. Each club attracts different crowds and each are good in their own right. The shopping is a lot to be desired, but the food around is great- as is the value for money! The amount to do in the town revives all negatives, with the waterfalls, beach, mountains, pier, lakes etc all making for more than enough to do.

I love the location of Bangor University for the history and natural beauty. It’s a lovely place if you like to go for walks. Also, the food in Bangor is cheap & most places are so delicious. Public transport is really cheap too, you can get to snowdonia for near nothing, and you’re close to Manchester/ Liverpool without having to be in a city-city. It’s such a safe place as well, it’s somewhere you always feel safe.

Bangor is a very small town so when you are out and about you nearly always see some one you know which is nice! But the size is also limited to things to do, it can often get repetitive so travelling outside the city is the alternative. Nightlife is okay, the clubs and pubs try their best! I think being with a good group of people on a night out here make it!
