The city of Birmingham, which is located in the West Midlands in England and is the most populous city in Britain outside London. The city is a major international commercial centre and as a result it has excellent transport, retail, events and conference facilities. The city has six universities which makes it the largest centre of higher education in the country outside London.
Birmingham's architecture is largely a product of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries having only really developed as a city as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Evidence of Birmingham's medieval history can be seen in its oldest churches, particularly the original parish church of St Martin in the Bull Ring, and two public houses - the Lad in the Lane and The Old Crown.
Birmingham's universities are: Aston University, University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University College Birmingham, Newman University and a campus of the University of Law and BPP University. The city is also home to the regional base of the Open University.
The city has three main line railway stations: Birmingham New Street, Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham Snow Hill. Between them they offer passengers many direct services across the United Kingdom. Curzon Street railway station is planned to be the northern terminus for phase 1 of the High Speed 2 rail link from London which is due to open in 2026.
The city of Coventry's Cathedral is perhaps one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is one of the newest cathedrals in the United Kingdom having been built in 1962. The construction was necessary following the destruction of the previous 14th century cathedral of Saint Michael by the German Luftwaffe in 1940 during the Second World War.
Coventry is located roughly 100 miles to the north west of London, 20 miles to the south east of Birmingham and 25 miles to the south west of Leicester. The city is home to the University of Warwick which is a short distance from the city centre, and Coventry University which is located in the city centre.
During the early 19th century the city was well-known due to author George Eliot (whose real name was Mary Ann Evans) who was born near Nuneaton. The city was the model for her famous novel Middlemarch. Coventry is also home to poet Philip Larkin who was born and brought up in the city. In more recent times Coventry is recognised for its range of music events including one of the UK's foremost international jazz programmes, the Coventry Jazz Festival, and the award-winning Godiva Festival.
