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. Toyota Manufacturing has its UK headquarters located just to the south of Derby at Burnaston.
Visitors to Derby can enjoy the city's notable landmarks which include Derby Cathedral, Derby Gaol, Derby Industrial Museum, Pickford's House Museum and the Derby Museum and Art Gallery.
The main shopping area in Derby is divided into three main areas. These are the Cathedral Quarter, the St Peters Quarter and Intu Shopping Centre. The Cathedral Quarter has a large number of shops, boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants and is centered around the Cathedral.
The city of Canterbury in Kent, England, contains many ancient buildings despite it being heavily damaged during the Second World War. The heart of the city is its cathedral which is the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the world wide Anglican Church. The cathedral is also the burial place of King Henry IV and Edward the Black Prince, but most famous as the scene of the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170.
The ruins of the Norman Canterbury Castle and St Augustine's Abbey are both open to the public. The medieval St Margaret's Church now houses the "The Canterbury Tales", in which life-sized character models reconstruct Geoffrey Chaucer's stories. The Westgate is now a museum relating to its history as a jail and the medieval church of St Alphege became redundant in 1982 but had a new lease of life as the Canterbury Urban Studies Centre, later renamed the Canterbury Environment Centre; the building is used by the King's School. The Old Synagogue at Canterbury, now the King's School Music Room, is one of only two Egyptian Revival synagogues still standing.
Travelling too and from the city is easy because it is connected to the national rail network by its two railway stations: Canterbury West and Canterbury East.
