Bristol is a city located in the south west of England and is the UK's 8th most populous city. The city borders the counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire and is close to the historic spa city of Bath to the south and Gloucester to the north. The city has been built around the River Avon and has a short coastline on the Severn Estuary which flows into the Bristol Channel.
Bristol has a long maritime history of trading commodities, originally wool cloth exports and imports of fish, wine, grain and dairy produce, later tobacco, tropical fruits and plantation goods; major imports now are motor vehicles, grain, timber, fresh produce and petroleum products. The port was originally in the city centre but was moved to the Severn Estuary at Avonmouth. The site of the former dock in the city centre has been redeveloped and now attracts visitors to its bars, restaurants and cultural venues.
Bristol is home to two major universities: the University of Bristol, a "redbrick" university chartered in 1909, and the University of the West of England, formerly Bristol Polytechnic, which gained university status in 1992. The University of Law also has a campus in the city.
The city has two main line railway stations: Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway which is located to the north of the city.
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.
