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 Monmouthshire, the city of Newport stands at the mouth of the River Usk. It is a busy industrial and commercial center and is home to the University of Wales Newport. Newport is surrounded by beautiful landscapes including the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Vale of Usk, famous for its salmon fishing, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Forest of Dean – both less than an hour’s drive from Newport.
To the south of the city lies the Caldicot and Wentloog Levels and Newport Wetlands Reserve. The Wetlands Reserve opened in March 2000 as a mitigation for the loss of mudflats caused by the building of the Cardiff Bay Barrage. Also a Local Nature Reserve is established at Allt-yr-yn.
On a sporting front, the city is currently home to a number of annual sporting events, including: The Wales Open European Tour golf tournament, the Elemis Invitational Trophy tennis tournament, the Welsh Open world ranking snooker tournament and the World Cup of Pool.
