The city of Bradford's oldest building is its cathedral where the oldest parts of the cathedral date back to 1458. It is one of only a few medieval buildings in Bradford that still remain. One other is Bolling Hall which is currently being used as a museum and education centre. Examples of architecture from the Victorian era, apart from the many mills in and around the city, include the City Hall, the former wool exchange and the Victorian cemetery at Undercliffe. A fine example of a Victorian commercial district can be found at Little Germany which is located just to the east of the city centre. The area takes its name from the 19th century German Jewish immigrants who ran their businesses from buildings in the area. Buildings in Little Germany have been renovated and converted into luxury apartments. These include Paper Hall and Eastbrook Hall.
The city also has The St George's Hall which is a grand concert hall built in 1853 which makes it the oldest concert hall in the United Kingdom and the third oldest in Europe.
Bradford is also a green city with the city and surrounding area having 37 parks and gardens. Lister Park, voted Britain's Best Park in 2006 has a boating lake and Mughal Water Gardens.
Located in the south east of England in the county of Kent, Canterbury is an historic city with its cathedral being the centre of the world wide Anglican Church. The cathedral, the oldest in England, dominates the city's skyline but there is more to Canterbury than its cathedral. The ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St martin's Church form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site. Canterbury is a small city and is best explored on foot. Walking trails or guided walks will help you make the most of your time here and to enjoy the winding lanes and streets, all with their own unique identity. Alternatively you may wish to relax and absorb the wonder of the city with a boat trip along the River Stour where will be able to appreciate Canterbury's finest and historical architecture set against outstanding, scenic views. The crystal clear waters of the Stour offer a home to ducks, swans, fish and other wildlife while the river banks have an array of bending willow trees and wild flowers. North of the city is the award winning Crab and Winkle Way which is mostly a traffic free, seven mile cycling and walking route based on an old railway line running between Canterbury and Whitstable. It's safe for children and provides a perfect place to picnic along the way in the heart of one of England's oldest forests.
