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 Norfolk, the city of Norwich and is roughly 115 miles to the north east of London. The city is a convenient base for exploring the Norfolk Broads, the North Norfolk Coast, along with the whole county of Norfolk. Norwich is a fairly small city and can easily be explored on foot. However, if you choose to use a bus most services are operated by FirstGroup and are useful for getting to the railway station and the riverside entertainment district, the university and the airport.
The River Yare is navigable from the sea at Great Yarmouth all the way to Trowse, south of the city. From there the River Wensum is navigable into Norwich up to New Mills, and is crossed by the Novi Sad Friendship Bridge. Scheduled trips through the city and out to The Broads are available from outside Norwich railway station and also Elm Hill. Recently Norwich City Council gave the go-ahead to introduce punting on the River Wensum.
The City of Norwich Aviation Museum is located at Horsham St. Faith, close to Norwich Airport. There are static displays of both military and civil aircraft, together with various collections of exhibits, including one concerned with the United States 8th Army Air Force.
