Catch the number 10 bus from here and in just 20 minutes you’ll find yourself in the University town of Bangor.
Gwynedd Museum and Art Gallery will make a great end to a great day out for budget travellers as entry is free of charge. Located close to the main bus stops in the centre of Bangor, it unfolds the rich heritage of the area through fascinating exhibits and artefacts. See the way life was lived in times gone by, through archaeology, art and domestic items which tell the area’s social history. There are textile exhibitions as well as the early furniture collection which includes a splendid oak drawer chest dating back to 1666, and a fine Welsh dresser. Also depicted is the history of the Welsh dragon and the Celtic language.
The gallery shows a programme of artists of local and international importance. Art exhibitions include paintings, photography and sculpture. There is, of course, a Museum Shop with quality craft products where you can purchase a souvenir of your stay.
