The city of Chester lies on the River Dee and is located in the county of Cheshire in north west England and is close to the border with Wales. Chester was granted city status in 1541. Chester was one of the last towns in England to fall to the Normans in the Norman conquest of England. William the Conqueror ordered the construction of a castle, to dominate the town and the nearby Welsh border. The city has a number of medieval buildings, but some of the black-and-white buildings within the city centre are actually Victorian restorations. Chester is one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain and apart from a 100-metre section, the listed Grade I walls are almost complete. A footpath runs along the top of the walls, crossing roads by bridges over Eastgate, Northgate, St Martin's Gate, Watergate, Bridgegate, Newgate, and the Wolf Gate, and passing a series of structures, namely Phoenix Tower (or King Charles' Tower), Morgan's Mount, the Goblin Tower (or Pemberton's Parlour), and Bonewaldesthorne's Tower with a spur leading to the Water Tower, and Thimbleby's Tower.
The Industrial Revolution brought railways, canals, and new roads to the city, which saw substantial expansion and development – Chester Town Hall and the Grosvenor Museum are examples of Victorian architecture from this period.
Located in the West Midlands region of England, the city of Coventry is the region's second largest city after Birmingham. One of the main visitor attractions in the city is the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum whose permanent gallery spaces include sculpture, Old Masters paintings, art since 1900, local history and natural history. The Coventry Transport Museum is also another major attraction in the city. The Museum is free to enter and contains the largest collection of British-made road vehicles in the world. It also exhibits are the world speed record breaking cars, Thrust2 and ThrustSSC.
Roughly four miles from the city centre is the Lunt Fort which is a reconstructed Roman fort on its original site. Coventry was also one of the main centres of watchmaking during the 18th and 19th centuries and as the industry declined, the skilled workers were key to setting up the cycle trade. A group of local enthusiasts founded a museum in Spon Street.
Coventry is 19 miles from the city of Birmingham, 24 miles from Leicester, 30 miles from Lichfield, 37 miles from Wolverhampton and 43 miles from Worcester.
