County Down - Daytrip, Belfast: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Bangor’s hertitage as a seaside resort and affluence is marked by the abundance of splendid Victorian and Edwardian buildings. Many of these houses provided board and lodgings for holiday makers. People came from all over Ireland to enjoy the sea air and Bangor has been described as ' a most salubrious, invigorating and alluring resort' by a famous visitor. Charles Dickens is said to have taken a holiday in Bangor and to have bathed in the bay at Ballyholme.
The pastel shades these houses have been painted is a tradition that results in a striking and pleasing effect at the seafront.
Address: South-east of Belfast.
