Best Places to Visit in Bnagor

Bangor Marina

Bangor Marina

Bangor Marina is my first port of call. Most visitors to Bangor will  arrive by yacht so Bangor Marina should be their first port of call. It  is also the most popular attraction in the picturesque seaside town of  Bangor.

The Eisenhower North Pier

Near the Marina is Bangor’s Pier. Officially known  as The Eisenhower Pier but some locals continue to call it North Pier. I  don’t know why. Bangor’s Pier is where larger boats dock.

Pickie Fun Park

Pickie Fun Park can  be found on the south side of Bangor Marina. It was once an outdoor  swimming area (Pickie Pool). This is quite crazy considering the cold  temperatures.

The Coastal Path

You can walk from Bangor to Holywood by following the coast path that  Pickie Fun Park has created. It’s about 10 miles, with 7 stops along the  way. It’s probably best to take the train.

Bangor Main Street

Bangor Main Street

You can walk up to Bangor Marina or down to the bus and train stations.  Depending on your origin, Bangor’s Main Street is where you are. This  has been somewhat dead in recent years, or more specifically, the last  10 years.

Castle Park and Town Hall

Castle Park and Town Hall

For anyone arriving by train or bus, the first images in Bangor will be  the Town Hall, and Castle Park. They are located directly opposite the  stations.
