Bangor is easily accessible by rail or road.


There are several direct trains per day from London (Virgin Trains), Birmingham and Cardiff (Arriva Trains Wales). Connections from other parts of the country can be made at Crewe and Chester.

The Main University Building is only 10 minutes' walk from Bangor railway station. On leaving the station via the main entrance (next to the ticket office), turn left up Holyhead Road. Continue past Morrisons and the shops, and turn right along College Road (between Options and the Belle Vue). The main university entrance is 200 metres along this road, on the right-hand side.


If you are driving to Bangor, the usual approach from the east is via the A55. This is a fast dual carriageway which connects to the motorway network near Chester.

The A5 offers an alternative route from the Midlands and the south. This is a historic and extremely scenic route through mid Wales and the Snowdonia National Park. It is best joined near Shrewsbury via the M54 or (from the south-west) the A49.

Bangor is just 20 miles away from the ferry terminal at Holyhead, from where there are several daily sailings to Dublin (Irish Ferries and Stena Line). From Holyhead, Bangor may be reached in around half an hour by train or along the A55.


The nearest international airports are Liverpool and Manchester, though it is almost equally easy to access Bangor from Birmingham or London airports. There are also daily flights between Cardiff and Anglesey Airport, less than 20 miles away.
