Back to Bangor

We’re back from visiting our old university town of Bangor after a break of nearly 20 years. The place has changed a great deal since we were last there but there were some pockets of familiarity still left in the town to discover.

I was able to have a wonder around my old department and to be honest the place hasn’t changed one bit. It even smelt the same as you walked in.

We also ventured up the hill to the Main Arts building and had an explore around there too. This was where I sat my exams and I remember one hall in particular had a great mural to stare at should you ever look up from your papers. We found it whilst wondering the corridors. I remember seeing The Lightening Seed play on this stage, Charlie liked that very much as he’s rather keen on the band too.

We also explored Snowdonia and other areas too. Whilst visiting Beaumaris over on Anglesey we just happened to be in the right place at the right time to see Blue peter filming at the life boat station there. So this week the Whitworths may make a brief appearance on your screens!
