The city of Coventry's Cathedral is perhaps one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is one of the newest cathedrals in the United Kingdom having been built in 1962. The construction was necessary following the destruction of the previous 14th century cathedral of Saint Michael by the German Luftwaffe in 1940 during the Second World War.
Coventry is located roughly 100 miles to the north west of London, 20 miles to the south east of Birmingham and 25 miles to the south west of Leicester. The city is home to the University of Warwick which is a short distance from the city centre, and Coventry University which is located in the city centre.
During the early 19th century the city was well-known due to author George Eliot (whose real name was Mary Ann Evans) who was born near Nuneaton. The city was the model for her famous novel Middlemarch. Coventry is also home to poet Philip Larkin who was born and brought up in the city. In more recent times Coventry is recognised for its range of music events including one of the UK's foremost international jazz programmes, the Coventry Jazz Festival, and the award-winning Godiva Festival.
Located in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the city of Kingston upon Hull (usually just called Hull) is to be the UK City of Culture in 2017. During that year, Hull will have undertaken a major redevelopment thanks to an £11 million funding from the government and will host many cultural events all over the city to boost tourism, jobs and the economy.
The city centre is fairly compact and mainly pedestrianised, which creates a relatively hassle-free walk around town. Bus services in Hull are operated by East Yorkshire Motor Services and Stagecoach and buses can be taken from the city's bus station, Hull Paragon Interchange. Local and national rail services can also be taken from the Interchange.
Developed from the old derelict Humber Dock in the early 1980's, Hull Marina provides space for 270 yachts and small sailing craft in its permanent and visiting berths. The area is an enjoyable stroll with some great cafes and old pubs, and hosts annual the Sea Fever Shanty Festival. Usually held on the first Saturday and Sunday in September the festival attracts major shanty singers from the United Kingdom and from around the world. The main stage is along the Prince's dock side and groups sing in the pubs near by.
