North Wales is renowned as a holiday destination, and so accommodation is plentiful in the surrounding area. Areas to consider include the North Wales coastline (Llandudno, Conwy, Caernarfon – all linked to Bangor by excellent bus services), the Isle of Anglesey (Beaumaris, Menai Bridge, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysyliogogoch – again, local bus services are excellent), and the Snowdonia National Park (Llanberis, Capel Curig, Betws-y-Coed). More information on accommodation in the surrounding area may be found at the VisitWales site.

Youth hostels

The nearest YHA youth hostels with winter opening are at Conwy and Pen-y-Pass, and there are privately-run hostels in Gerlan, Bethesda, Capel Curig and Caernarfon.

Couch surfing

Limited budget accommodation is also being offered by Bangor University students, some of whom have spare rooms available for the duration of the conference. If this option appeals to you, please post an expression of interest on the conference Facebook page.

You may also wish to use our Facebook page to find room-mates, as this will cut accommodation costs further.


Lunch and light refreshments are provided on every day of the conference.

Bangor has a wide range of options for evening meals, all at very reasonable prices (below £10 a head). Options within walking distance of the University campus include Chinese, French, Greek, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Kurdish, Thai, "greasy spoon", and a wide range of pub food.
