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.
The Scottish city of Stirling is located in the centre of Scotland where Highland mountains and lochs meet Lowland cities and is the gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Scotland’s first national park. The Old Town is like a walk through history with the Castle, mansions, town walls, graveyards and ghosts. Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling contains the Great Hall and the Renaissance Palace within the Castle that rivaled any building in Europe at the time. Stirling also has its medieval parish church, The Church of the Holy Rude, where King James VI was crowned King of Scots on 29 July 1567. The Holy Rude still functions as a living church with a service every Sunday. The best way to explore Stirling is on foot. Walks range from history trails and countryside rambles to a children’s quiz walk and ghost tours. For example, the Back Walk runs along the 16th century Town Walls with glimpses into Old Town gardens and views over King’s Park to the distant mountains. The city is also an active city. Apart from its own football and rugby teams, visitors can play a round of golf, go for a swim or go horse riding.
