A STUDY has revealed Bangor to be the third-most “British” city in the UK, in the run-up to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

The list was curated by Vendula London, who analysed data of every UK city, comparing them on typically “British’ factors, including the number of pubs and its annual days of rainfall.

The rankings were as follows:

1. Truro, Cornwall.

2. Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear.

3. Bangor, Gwynedd.

4. Durham, County Durham.

5. Ripon, North Yorkshire.

6. Bath, Somerset.

7. Lincoln, Lincolnshire and Bristol.

8. Chester, Cheshire and Plymouth, Devon.

Researchers gathered the data by analysing the following factors in each city:

• How many pubs there are per 100,000 people.

• How many fish and chip shops there are per 100,000 people

• How many National Trust locations there are in the city’s county.

• How close the city is to the national average days of rainfall a year (135.9).

With Bangor ranking at number three, Vendula London found that the city has:

• 126 pubs per 100,000 people.

• 295 fish and chip shops per 100,000 people.

• 155.1 days of rain a year (average).

• Nine National Trust sites in its county.

Experts at Vendula London said: “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is the perfect time for us all to celebrate our British identities and be genuinely proud of the country we live in and the values we all hold so dearly.

“From getting fish and chips on a Friday night to visiting some of our local National Trust sites, these are the things that make us Brits who we are and set us apart from the rest of the world.

“Whether you live in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales, we can all celebrate this extra special occasion together in our unique ways.”
