Town Walk and Cultural Trail of Bangor Town Centre

Bangor’s history is a wide and varied one. The first settlement was in Neolithic times but it was the founding of the monastery by St Comgall in AD558 that laid the town foundations.

The trail focuses on many aspects of Bangor’s history highlighting it’s key sites and buildings of interest. The walk takes approx. 1½ hrs to complete (unless you follow the coastal path for a time or take a walk through one of the parks).

A number of beautiful beaches are found nearby - these include Helen's Bay Beach, Crawfordsburn Beach, Ballyholme Beach and Groomsport Beach.
