The city of Coventry is in the county of the West Midlands in England and is the 10th largest city in England and the 13th largest in the United Kingdom. The city is roughly 100 miles to the north west of London and 20 miles to the south east of Birmingham. It is also the furthest from the coast than any other city in the United Kingdom.
One of Coventry's landmarks, its cathedral buildings which were built in 1962, is one of the newest in the UK following the destruction of the 14th century cathedral of Saint Michael by the German Luftwaffe in 1940. The spire of the ruined cathedral forms one of the "three spires" which have dominated the city skyline since the 14th century, the others being those of Christ Church (of which only the spire survives) and Holy Trinity Church (which is still in use).
The city has two universities: Coventry University which is located on a modern city centre campus, and the University of Warwick which is located around 4 miles to the south of the city. The University of Warwick is a member of the Russell Group of universities and is one of only five universities that has never been ranked outside of the top ten universities in the UK in terms of teaching excellence and research.
The city of Chester lies close to the border with Wales and is located in the north west of England in the county of Cheshire. There are many things to do in the city including visiting the Roman walls and wandering along The Groves or around the historic market town. The Groves is Chester's own promenade that runs alongside the River Dee from Grosvenor Park to the Old Handlebridge. The Groves was established as a promenade in the early 18th century.
For visitors interested in horse racing, Chester Racecourse is located on the Roodee which was originally the site of the Roman Port. If visitors want to see some of the racing action for free then the Roman walls walk you right past a view of the action.
Roman remains can still be seen in the city, particularly in the basements of some of the city's buildings and also in the lower parts of the northern section of the city walls. Perhaps the most important feature is the amphitheatre just outside the walls. Roman artifacts are on display in the Roman Gardens which run parallel to the city walls from Newgate to the River Dee.
