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 Cambridgeshire, the city of Ely is roughly 14 miles to the north east of the city of Cambridge. The English King, Henry III, granted the Bishop of Ely a market in the 13th century. Today, the market is open on Thursday and Saturday and is supplemented with seasonal markets held monthly on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from Easter to November. The city is situated on the River Great Ouse, which was a significant means of transport until the fens were drained and Ely ceased to be an island in the eighteenth century. The river is now a popular boating spot, and has a large marina.
