Cambridge is located about 50 miles to the north east of London and lies in an area of level and relatively low lying terrain to the south of the Fens, which is a naturally marshy area in Eastern England which are between 6 and 24 meters above sea level. These wetlands originally surrounded Cambridge but were drained as Cambridge expanded. The city lies on the banks of the River Cam and is also bordered by water meadow such as Sheep's Green. The city takes its name from the River Cam.
The city's principle theatre is the Arts Centre which has 666 seats and is located in the city centre. The theatre often puts on touring shows along with productions by local theatre companies. The largest venue in the city is the Cambridge Corn Exchange which has a capacity of 1,800 standing or 1,200 seated. The venue is regularly hosts theatre, dance and music performances.

The city of Gloucester is located in the county of Gloucestershire and lies close to the border with Wales. The city, which also lies on the River Severn, has a rich past dating back to Roman times. At the heart of the city, and standing in College Green, is the Norman cathedral with its breathtaking fan-vaulted cloisters and great east window. From the cathedral it is only a short walk down narrow cobbled streets, past historical buildings, to the main shopping area in the city. From there it is, once again, a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its now converted warehouses. In the docks you are likely to see all manner of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. The city is also an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area and take in the splendour of the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. The Cotswolds is an area of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The Forest of Dean is an area of mixed ancient woodland and forms a roughly triangular plateau bounded by the River Wye to the west and north, the River Severn to the south, and the City of Gloucester to the east.
