Anglesey is one of the most popular destinations in North Wales and because it's an island there's the added bonus of never being too far from the sea. When the sun is shining, get your friends together and explore Anglesey's many beaches and miles of beautiful coastline.
The town of Menai Bridge, which is where our School of Ocean Sciences is based, is around 15 minutes' walk from Upper Bangor. Menai Bridge has several cafes, restaurants and bars and a number of locally-owned shops and boutiques.
Anglesey is also your gateway to Ireland and regular ferries run from Holyhead to Dublin, with the journey taking around two hours. You can travel to Holyhead by direct train from Bangor.
Snowdonia National Park
