Bangor is known as the "City of Learning", which shows the major position that the University plays within the City. Formed from collections made by the slate miners to advance the education of the Welsh people, the university is a major centre of higher education in the welsh language; but like the welsh themselves it is also distictly bi-lingual.

You cannot visit Bangor without visiting the University., as it surround you and towers over you. A great piece of Victorian monumental archticture atop a hill is the main university building.
