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.
Located in Central Scotland, the city of Stirling is the county town of Stirlingshire. The city is sometimes referred to as "The Gateway to the Highlands" which has led to it having a significant position in Scotland's history. Major battles for Scottish independence took place in and around Stirling.
A major new regeneration project is underway on the site of the former port area and former Ministry of Defence site, adjacent to Stirling Railway Station. Known as Forthside, it has the aim of developing a new waterfront district linked to the railway station via a new pedestrian bridge. The development comprises retail, residential and commercial elements, including a conference centre, hotel and Vue multiplex cinema, that will ultimately expand the city centre area, linking it to the River Forth, which has been cut off from the city centre area since the construction of a nearby road in the 1960's.
In summer there is a sightseeing bus which is a cheap way to get to the sights, as you can "hop on and off" at any time. There are regular coach services to Stirling from all over Scotland run mainly by Scottish Citylink, with regular departures from Glasgow (Buchanan Bus Station) and Edinburgh (St Andrew's Bus Station) calling en-route to either Inverness or Aberdeen.
