Brighton is located on the south coast of England and lies between the South Downs and the English Channel to the north and south respectively. The Sussex coast forms a wide, shallow bay between the headlands of Selsey Bill and Beachy Head.
The Lanes form a retail, leisure and residential area located near the sea front and is charecterised by narrow alleyways following the street pattern of the original fishing village. The Lanes contains mainly clothing shops, jewelers, restaurants and pubs. Brighton's main retail centre is the Churchill Square shopping centre which has over 80 shops, restaurants and parking for 1,600 cars.
Brighton has many important landmarks including The Royal Pavilion which is a former royal palace which was built as a home for the Prince Regent during the early 19th century. The construction of the palace was undertaken under the direction of architect John Nash. Other notable landmarks include Brighton Marine Palace and Pier (known as the Palace Pier) which opened in 1899. It contains a funfair, restaurants and arcade halls. The West Pier was built in 1866 and is one of only two Grade I listed piers in the UK but is closed to the public since 1975.
The university city of Bangor in north west Wales can trace its history back to the founding of a monastery on the site of Bangor Cathedral by the Celtic saint Deiniol in the 6th century. The current cathedral is a more recent structure but the bishopric of Bangor is one of the oldest in Britain. The city's university was founded in 1884 and the Friars School, established as a free grammar school, was founded in 1557. In 1877, the former HMS Clio became a school ship, moored on the Menai Strait at Bangor, and had 260 pupils. Closed after the end of hostilities of World War I, she was sold for scrap and broken up in 1919.
The population of Bangor is around 14,000 and is therefore one of the smallest cities in the United Kingdom. However, because it is a university city it has more facilities than one would expect for a small city.
Around half of the people in the city can speak Welsh, but if you took away all of the students in the University, this figure would be much higher.
