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.
The city of Leeds is located in West Yorkshire and is one of the United Kingdom's most accessible cities. With excellent road, rail and air connections, getting to and from the city is easy. If you want to experience something different whilst in Leeds then visit the exotic creatures including meerkats, crocodiles, butterflies and bats in their home at Tropical World. Or experience the rainforest heat without leaving the city. The Thackray Museum tells the story of medicine from the site of a former hospital and provides a fun way to learn about the human body. Take a stroll along the canal to Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills, formerly the world's largest woolen mill, which also houses a charming 24 seater picture house within the museum. Home to Britain's national collection of arms and armour, the Royal Armouries Museum houses a world-renowned collection of over 75,000 objects.
