Just got back from a short break.

Did a bit of fishing with my kids in Holyhead Harbour and had a few wrasse and pollack.

Everywhere we went we found clean and tidy and the people friendly and helpful, with the exception of Bangor.

7pm and it was shut and the only people about were p*ss heads and hoodies.

We didn't hang around long and went back to the digs.

Still it hasn't put us off and we will no doubt return at the soonest opportunity.

Also the Welsh roads are in fantastic condition compared to our crappy English ones.

This was the town centre.

Didn't get to fish the pier.

Next time we're going to stay a bit further north.

Bangor is full of the Uni students at night, no wonder they close early from what I have seen.

If you are a student at Bangor uni





Take a bow






and be ashamed.

These weren't students, they were seasoned p*ss heads by the look of them.

There were a few student types about, but they were well behaved, even if they were downing the lager at the time.

FYI, Term finished over a month ago. The evening pond-life in Bangor consists entirely of " lovely, intelligent locals". It you cared to even look, you'll find the students are invariably well-behaved..... Say no more.....

i agree,having gone to school in bangor and knowing the city fairly well you came accross the lovely single cell organisms known as locals.A problem not just in bangor but most small city/town centres in the uk at that time of the evening.

It is very unfair to suggest that Bangor students are mindless, intimidating thugs.
As a resident of said city I can assure you all that the mindless thugs are largely locals. Bangor is a very intimidating and unpleasant place to be in the evening.
Without the University Bangor would be very much poorer both financially and culturally.

Afraid they are right, students are mostly well intentioned but as my sister in law at Ysbyty Gwynedd tells me locals not so, she sees the results.
