The city of Bristol, which borders the counties of Gloucestershire and Somerset, has always prospered due to its ties to the sea. The city's commercial Port of Bristol was originally located on the heart of the city but was moved to Avonmouth on the Severn Estuary. Royal Portbury Dock lies to the west of the city. Additionally, Bristol has a long history as a centre of culture and as such is the largest cultural centre in the region. In recent years the city's economy has increasingly depended on the creative media, electronics and aerospace industry. The site of the former docks in the city centre have been regenerated as a centre of heritage and culture. The city's principal theatre company, the Bristol Old Vic, was founded in 1946 as an offshoot of The Old Vic company in London. Its premises on King Street consist of the 1766 Theatre Royal which has 607 seats, a modern studio theatre called the New Vic which has 150 seats, and foyer and bar areas in the adjacent Coopers' Hall (built 1743).
Bristol is located in an area of limestone which runs from the Mendip Hill to the south to the Cotswolds to the north east. The River Avon flows from nearby Bath and created a gorge, the Avon Gorge, which helped to protect Bristol Harbour.
The city of Plymouth is located on the south coast of Devon, in the south west of England. There are many attractions in and around the city for visitors to enjoy. Plymouth Central Museum and Art Gallery is a family friendly museum on the edge of the city centre. The museum includes natural history and human history exhibits. The museum has 10 permanent galleries, two galleries that hosts changing exhibitions throughout the year, a shop and a cafe. There are plenty of outdoor action packed family experiences to enjoy also. Plymouth Sound, and the rivers that flow into it, bustle with crafts large and small and a fantastic network of water taxis, foot ferries, sightseeing tours and fishing trips offer great family friendly ways to explore. From Stonehouse hop on a ferry and make the ancient crossing to Mount Edgcumbe via the Cremyll Ferry. The ferry route dates back to the 11th century and carries passengers over the River Tamar to the beautiful country park, ideal for a day exploring or relaxing, with plenty of room to kick a ball, ride bikes or fly a kite. Alternatively, join a Tamar Cruise from the Barbican to experience Plymouth from the water and discover the weird and wonderful wildlife that calls our waterfront home.
