About Port Penrhyn

Port Penrhyn is situated towards the North Eastern entrance to the Menai Straits, close to the small cathedral City of Bangor. The stone-faced jetties forming the berths run out from the shoreline at approximately 340 degrees (T).

The port is in the process of developing its commercial operations because of an expected growth in coastal shipping in the future. Port Penrhyn is extremely optimistic for the future.

North Wales and the North West of England is renowned for its industry which has traditionally used the Port of Liverpool for the vast majority of raw material imports/exports. The expansion of Port Penrhyn will not only provide healthy competition to the benefit of industry, but it may also open up alternative means of transporting Welsh natural resources to large industrial centres.
