The city of Bath, located in the Avon Valley, lies at the southern edge of the Cotswolds which are a range of limestone hills which have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hills that the city lies on and are surrounded by have a maximum altitude of just under 800 feet.
The geothermal springs that rise up through the ground in the city, fell as rain in the Mendip Hills. The water percolates through the limestone aquifers at a depth of around 10,000 feet. At it as this depth that geothermal energy heats the water to a temperature of between 64 and 96 degrees centigrade (147 - 205 degreed Fahrenheit). As the water is under pressure it rises to the surface along fissures and fractures in the limestone rock.
The city of Bath has five theatres: Bath Theatre Royal, Ustinov Studio, the egg, the Rondo Theatre and the Mission Theatre. Between them they attract internationally celebrated companies and directors along with an annual season by Sir Peter Hall. Bath Abbey, home to the Klais Organ and the largest concert venue in the city, stages about 20 concerts and 26 organ recitals each year. The art deco Forum, which was originally a cinema, is another concert venue in the city and has a capacity of 1,700.
The city of Coventry in the West Midlands, England, is roughly an hour from London and twenty minutes from the city of Birmingham. There are plenty of things to do and see throughout the year including festivals, exhibitions, concerts and theatre performances. There is something for all the family. One of the most fascinating monuments in the city today is the remnants of its original city walls and gates which were built in the 14th century. The construction work began at New Gate and was initially completed around 1400. Visitors can still find examples of the old wall to this day, including the magnificently well-preserved wall link between Cook Street Gate and Swanswell Gate that runs right through Lady Herbert’s Garden. The wall measured approximately 2.2 miles right around, containing 32 towers and 12 gatehouses in total. The city walls were demolished in 1662 on the orders of King Charles II as a punishment for Coventry’s housing of Parliamentarians during the war. The remaining wall is protected under law and are classified as Grade I listed buildings and a scheduled monument.
