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.
Located in the county of Lincolnshire, the city of Lincoln is an ideal destination for a city break. The city offers an experience rich in history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and a wealth of places to eat and drink. The city is easily walkable for visitors with good mobility - the main shopping and tourist area stretches from St Marks Shopping centre in the south up to the Cathedral Quarter - known locally as 'Uphill'. Steep Hill, voted Britain's Great Street 2012, connects 'downhill' and 'uphill' Lincoln.
The Collection (a museum and gallery in the city) of which the Usher Gallery is now a part, is an important attraction. Housed partly in a recently opened, purpose-built venue, it currently contains over 2,000,000 objects, and was one of the four finalists for the 2006 Gulbenkian Prize. Any material from official archaeological excavations in Lincolnshire is eventually displayed at The Collection and therefore it is growing all the time.
The easiest way to get around central Lincoln is on foot. The city is small and compact with services and attractions within a few minutes walk of each other. It should be possible to walk from the easternmost end of Lincoln to the western end at a very leisurely pace in around one hour.
