The city of Bath in Somerset in the south west of England is perhaps most famous for its Roman Baths and for its architecture particularly Lansdown Crescent, the Royal Crescent, The Circus and Pulteney Bridge. The city is approximately 100 miles to the west of London and 15 miles to the south east of Bristol.
The city became a spa with the Latin name Aquae Sulis ("the waters of Sulis") at around AD 60 when the Romans built the baths and a temple in the city. The city became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. However, there is more to the city than its baths and architecture. The city's theatres, museums and other cultural and sporting venues are major draws for over 4 million visitors each year.
Royal Victoria Park, which is a short walk from the city centre, was opened in 1830 by Princess Victoria (later Queen Victoria) and was the first park to carry her name. The park is overlooked by the Royal Crescent and covers around 23 hectares. Contained within the park is a skate park, tennis courts, bowling green, a putting green, two golf courses, a children's play area and an open air concert venue.
The city of Edinburgh in Scotland has a rich history which has resulted in the city having many historic buildings. Examples include Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the churches of St Giles, Greyfriars and the Canongate. Edinburgh also has an international reputation as a centre of learning particularly in medicine, science and engineering. The University of Edinburgh, which was founded in 1583, was recently placed 17th in the QS World University Rankings 2013, and is one of four universities in the city.
The city is also famous for the Edinburgh International Festival, which, since its inception in 1947, has grown – largely as a result of the "Fringe" and other associated events – into the biggest annual international arts festival in the world. The Festival is usually held over three weeks from the middle of August and brings top class performers of music (especially classical music), theatre, opera and dance from around the world to perform. The festival also hosts a series of visual art exhibitions, talks and workshops. However, the main festival has been overtaken in size and popularity by the Edinburgh Fringe which initially began as a range of alternative acts alongside the 'official' Festival and has progressed to become the largest performing arts festival in th world.
