Although not the largest cathedral I found Bangor cathedral to be a lovely peaceful and interesting building. I was made very welcome by the staff and left to explore at my own pace. As a previous review says not being hassled for a donations as soon as you enter was also a joy, a cathedral is a spiritual place not just a business and I thought the staff here had he balance just right.

I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this Cathedral again. There was no beautiful feeling of serenity in this building as this is destroyed by the ghastly shop that pervades a large corner.

All sorts of items of interest, but you have to look for them. Rather a strange organ console where the organist can't hear the choir but a lovely acoustic and a beautiful setting.

Lovely compact cathedral with lots to see and a wonderful atmosphere. No pressure to donate and certainly no turnstiles like they have at Winchester and Salisbury! Staffed by very friendly and helpful volunteers. Would go back just for the spiritual atmosphere alone.

Right in the centre of town- so easy to get to.Lovely stained glass windows and remnants of older churches although this one was mostly rebuilt in the 19th century.
