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 Plymouth is located on the south coast of Devon, in the south west of England. There are many attractions in and around the city for visitors to enjoy. Plymouth Central Museum and Art Gallery is a family friendly museum on the edge of the city centre. The museum includes natural history and human history exhibits. The museum has 10 permanent galleries, two galleries that hosts changing exhibitions throughout the year, a shop and a cafe. There are plenty of outdoor action packed family experiences to enjoy also. Plymouth Sound, and the rivers that flow into it, bustle with crafts large and small and a fantastic network of water taxis, foot ferries, sightseeing tours and fishing trips offer great family friendly ways to explore. From Stonehouse hop on a ferry and make the ancient crossing to Mount Edgcumbe via the Cremyll Ferry. The ferry route dates back to the 11th century and carries passengers over the River Tamar to the beautiful country park, ideal for a day exploring or relaxing, with plenty of room to kick a ball, ride bikes or fly a kite. Alternatively, join a Tamar Cruise from the Barbican to experience Plymouth from the water and discover the weird and wonderful wildlife that calls our waterfront home.
