Chichester is a city located in West Sussex in the south east of England and is the only city in West Sussex. The city lies on the River Lavant just to the south of its gap through the South Downs. Its origins began with its Roman settlement and subsequent importance in Anglo-Saxon times and is home to some of the oldest churches and building in the United Kingdom. Chichester has medieval city walls surrounding it which have been built on Roman foundations.
Chichester Cathedral, founded in the 11th century, is dedicated to the Holy Trinity, and contains a shrine to Saint Richard of Chichester. Its spire was built of the weak local stone and collapsed suddenly and was rebuilt during the 19th century.
The architecture of the Roman town within Chichester has been declared a conservation area which includes many Grade I listed buildings. There is another conservation area to the north around the former Graylingwell Hospital and another to the south to include the newly restored canal basin and part of the canal itself.
The city has taken maximum advantage of its past and has used it to develop a large tourist industry. There are also several marinas located nearby which support local related industries. The city's proximity to Chichester Harbour and the South Downs provide excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
The city of Coventry in the West Midlands, England, is roughly an hour from London and twenty minutes from the city of Birmingham. There are plenty of things to do and see throughout the year including festivals, exhibitions, concerts and theatre performances. There is something for all the family. One of the most fascinating monuments in the city today is the remnants of its original city walls and gates which were built in the 14th century. The construction work began at New Gate and was initially completed around 1400. Visitors can still find examples of the old wall to this day, including the magnificently well-preserved wall link between Cook Street Gate and Swanswell Gate that runs right through Lady Herbert’s Garden. The wall measured approximately 2.2 miles right around, containing 32 towers and 12 gatehouses in total. The city walls were demolished in 1662 on the orders of King Charles II as a punishment for Coventry’s housing of Parliamentarians during the war. The remaining wall is protected under law and are classified as Grade I listed buildings and a scheduled monument.
