The city of Derby is located in the East Midlands area of England and lies on the River Derwent. The city of Derby has an important place in economic history as it is considered to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and home to the first factory in the world. The arrival of the railways in the 19th century also led Derby to become an important centre of the British rail industry.
Modern day Derby has an international reputation for advanced transport manufacturing being home to the world's second largest aircraft engine manufacturer, Rolls Royce, and to Derby Litchurch Lane Works, the UK's only remaining train manufacturer which is now owned by Bombardier.

The city of Bradford's oldest building is its cathedral where the oldest parts of the cathedral date back to 1458. It is one of only a few medieval buildings in Bradford that still remain. One other is Bolling Hall which is currently being used as a museum and education centre. Examples of architecture from the Victorian era, apart from the many mills in and around the city, include the City Hall, the former wool exchange and the Victorian cemetery at Undercliffe. A fine example of a Victorian commercial district can be found at Little Germany which is located just to the east of the city centre.
