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 Ely, located in the county of Cambridgeshire in the east of England, is home to one of the most magnificent cathedrals in England. Apart from taking in the many splendours of the cathedral why not visit the Stained Glass Museum which is located in the South Triforium of Ely Cathedral. The museum has a stunning collection of stained glass and is the only museum dedicated to the art in the country. A guided tour is highly recommended as it unveils the story of stained glass. If you fancy a stroll then following the eel trail is an excellent way of seeing historic Ely at its best. This circular walk self-guided by brass waymarkers set in the ground, takes you past the oldest parts of Ely with its beautiful monastic buildings with stunning architecture and spectacular views. Ely has a beautiful waterside where you can enjoy a boat trip, a riverside walk or listen to music in the neighbouring Jubilee Gardens. As well as an art gallery and the region's largest antique centre, the riverside is home to a variety of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms.
