History of Bangor

Bangor is a cathedral city in Northwest Wales, and it is the oldest and smallest city in Wales dating to the early 6th century AD. 

The Bangor Cathedral was built in a Gothic Style in the 13th Century but was established in the 6th century and has undergone extensive work over the centuries. 

Bangor remained a small settlement until the 18th century when it was designated as a post town in 1718 due to a political desire to increase communications between Ireland and England. 

In 1893 the Garth Pier was opened as a promenade pier & being the second longest pier in Wales at 1,500 feet in length. It was damaged in 1914 due to being struck by a vessel that had broken free from its moorings, and over the years it has had many repair works carried out to it. 

In 1438 the Penrhyn Castle was built out of stone and added a tower house, later in the 1780s the property was reconstructed. The Castle now belongs to the National Trust and is open to the public.
