General information

Stricklands Glen

Strickland's Glen in the residential area of Bangor West is an enchanting wooded glen which follows the Bryan's Burn, a bubbling stream which runs from Connor Park into Smelt Mill Bay.

It's shady tree lined walks take you along a series of ponds and waterfalls to one of the beautiful little coves which are dotted along the North Down Coastal Path.

Follow this pathway towards Bangor and walk along the old Landing Stage at the bottom of Brompton Road. The walls and turrets overlooking the jetty are the perimeter of Seacourt, former mansion of a Belfast Industrialist.

Please note sections of the coastal path cross private roads and lanes. Please pay attention for traffic and be respectful to land owners.
