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.
Located in the county of Monmouthshire, the city of Newport stands at the mouth of the River Usk. It is a busy industrial and commercial center and is home to the University of Wales Newport. Newport is surrounded by beautiful landscapes including the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Vale of Usk, famous for its salmon fishing, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Forest of Dean – both less than an hour’s drive from Newport.
To the south of the city lies the Caldicot and Wentloog Levels and Newport Wetlands Reserve. The Wetlands Reserve opened in March 2000 as a mitigation for the loss of mudflats caused by the building of the Cardiff Bay Barrage. Also a Local Nature Reserve is established at Allt-yr-yn.
On a sporting front, the city is currently home to a number of annual sporting events, including: The Wales Open European Tour golf tournament, the Elemis Invitational Trophy tennis tournament, the Welsh Open world ranking snooker tournament and the World Cup of Pool.
Many of the landmarks of Newport are in Newport city centre or within a short walking distance of the centre. These include the railway station, the bus station, the Castle, the Westgate Hotel, the Market, the Museum and Central Library, the Cathedral, the Transporter Bridge and Newport Bridge.
