The city of Bangor is located in the North Wales coast and is regarded as one of the smallest cities in the UK. It is one of only 6 conurbations is Wales that has city status. The city lies close to the Menai Strait which separates the island of Anglesey from Gwynedd. Bangor Mountain lies to the east of the city and the mountain casts a shadow over parts of the city which means that from November to March some areas receive no direct sunlight. The origins of the city date back to the establishment of the monastery on the site of Bangor Cathedral by the Celtic saint Deiniol in the 6th century AD. The Welsh translation of Bangor means "wattled enclosure" such as the one that originally surrounded the cathedral.
Bangor is famous for its University which was founded in 1884 and the city's Friars School was founded as a free grammar school in 557. Bangor is also known for having the longest High Street in Wales.
Bangor's main shopping area is centered around the High Street and the retail outlets on Caernarfon Road on the outskirts of the city, one being St David's Retail Park.
Located in the county of Oxfordshire, the city of Oxford is roughly 50 miles to the west of London. The city is known throughout the world as home to the historic Oxford University, founded in the 12th century, which is the oldest university in the United Kingdom. Oxford's famous "Dreaming Spires" refer to the medieval churches and colleges that dominate the bustling modern town in all their Gothic splendour. Picturesque architecture and a vibrant modern life (driven by students, light industry and technology) set in the rolling countryside of Oxfordshire make this a great destination.
Oxford city centre is very compact and easily walkable with many areas of the city centre pedestrianised. All major tourist sights are well-signposted. The narrow streets of the city centre are pedestrian-friendly, difficult for cars and full of beautiful buildings that will draw your attention upwards.
The preferred mode of transport for the university student is the bicycle and like Amsterdam, Copenhagen or Beijing, there are hundreds of them. Most trains into Oxford allow bicycles to be carried for free. Fortunately, there are cycle lanes on virtually ever street near the centre; however, you will sometimes be sharing the road with other motorists.
