The city of Chester is located in north west England close to the border with Wales and was one of the last towns to fall to the Normans during the Norman conquest of England. William the Conqueror ordered the construction of a castle that was to dominate the town. The city has a number of medieval buildings although some of the black and white buildings in the city centre are actually Victorian restorations. The major museum in Chester is the Grosvenor Museum which includes a collection of Roman tombstones and an art gallery. Chester Visitor Centre, opposite the Roman Amphitheatre, issues a leaflet giving details of tourist attractions.
Perhaps the most important structure that survives is Chester Castle, particularly the Agricola Tower. The River Dee, along with its 11th century weir, runs to the south of the city where it can be crossed by the Old Dee Bridge which dates back to the 13th century, the Grosvenor Bridge which was built in 1832 and the Queen's Park suspension bridge which is a pedestrian bridge. The Shropshire Union Canal runs to the north of the city and a branch connects it to the River Dee.
Chester Racecourse is close to the city centre and lies in the area between the city walls and the River Dee.
The city of Exeter is located right in the heart of the county of Devon in the south west of England. The city is surrounded by breathtaking countryside and is close to the Jurassic Coast, England's first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city, with it gothic cathedral and medieval underground Passages, is full of heritage and culture spanning 2,000 years. The city's quayside is a hub of activity, with cycle and canoe hire available to explore the River Exe and canal, and the Quay Climbing Centre providing a lofty space in which to climb. Hire a bicycle and follow the Exe Estuary Trail, a 26 mile foot and cycle path following the Exe Estuary linking Exmouth, Exeter and Dawlish, with fantastic views along the River Exe. Exeter also offers its visitors the opportunity to take various guided walking tours around the city with the Red Coat Guides. These volunteer guides will take you for a 90-minute (approx.) tour, leading you around the various attractions and showing you some of the most popular sights to see. All this, whilst also presenting lots of interesting facts and tales of Exeter's long and historical past.
