Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland and is located within the eastern central Lowlands on the north bank of the Firth or Tay which leads into the North Sea. The city grew rapidly in the 19th century due to the jute industry which gave the city its epithet as the city of "jute, jam and journalism".
Dundee is famous for building the RRS Discovery, Robert Falcon Scott's Atlantic exploration vessel which is now berthed in the city's harbour. The city has reinvented itself over recent decades and is now home to many Biomedical and technological industries and now accounts for 10% of the United Kingdom's digital entertainment industry. The city is also known for the Dandy, the Beano, Desperate Dan and Oor Wullie comic books.
Visitors wishing to orient themselves should consider taking a walk (or drive) up the Law, the plug of an extinct volcano, which offers a 360-degree uninterrupted view of Dundee, the Tay estuary and the Tay Bridge, famously replacing the bridge demolished after the disaster of 1879, and the Tay Road Bridge.
The main shopping area is in the town centre and offers consumers a variety of shops and department stores.
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.
