In recent years the city of Birmingham has evolved from its industrial roots into a modern, thriving and cultural city. The redevelopment of the Bullring Shopping Centre and also of the old industrial areas such as Brindleyplace, The Mailbox and the International Convention Centre have all played their part in the rejuvenation of the city. Old streets, buildings and canals have been restored to create a city for the 21st century.
Birmingham, along with the residential borough of Solihull and Wolverhampton, along with the industrial towns of the Black Country, together form the West Midlands Built-up Area which covers around 230 square miles. Surrounding this, is Birmingham's metropolitan area which includes Tamworth and the cities of Lichfield in Staffordshire, Coventry, Nuneaton, Warwick, Leamington Spa and the towns of Redditch and Bromsgrove in Warwickshire.
Birmingham is also a very green city with 571 parks which is more than any other European city. Sutton Park covers 2,400 acres and is the largest urban park in Europe and a National Nature Reserve. Birmingham Botanical Gardens, located close to the city centre, retains the regency landscape of its original design by J. C. Loudon in 1829,while the Winterbourne Botanic Garden in Edgbaston reflects the more informal Arts and Crafts tastes of its Edwardian origins.
The city of Durham is located in the north east of England in the district of County Durham. The city is home to the iconic Durham Cathedral and Castle UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is at the heart of a region that has amazing countryside and a breathtaking coastline. Visitors to the city can explore the tranquility of the Durham Dales, the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, High Force waterfall and the Durham Heritage Coast. In the city you can take in the city's history at the Beamish Museum and Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon which is home of the first ever steam hauled passenger train which operated during the opening ceremony of the Stockton and Darlington Railway in 1825. When it's time to relax take a stroll through the city's cobbled streets and stop off at one of the city's many restaurants, pubs and coffee shops.
