It seems smaller then it is, as it extends and rambles around quite a bit.
A lot of it isnt high street, or really that much of a "shoppy" place.
Just a really small, quiet town :P
The University itself is scattered in departments throughout city, so the George site is practically outside the city, near the Menai Bridge, but the Physics Department where my Dad works is right on the High Street. It all depends what you are studying.
