As a result of a conflict between Scotland and England between 1543 and 1550, known as the Rough Wooing, there is little remaining of Dundee's medieval city. However, one example of a structure that does survive from this era is the Wishart Arch (or East Port) in Cowgate. Dating back to 1544 it is the last surviving section of the city walls. Another example of medieval architecture that survives is Gardyne's Land on the High Street which dates back to around 1560.
Dundee lies in the central eastern Lowlands of Scotland on the north bank of the Firth of Tay which eventually flows into the North Sea. Dundee is Scotland's fourth largest city and is famous for building the RRS Discovery which was captain Scott's Atlantic exploration ship. The RRS Discovery can now be found berthed in Dundee's harbour.
The city has a thriving student population and is home to two universities: the University of Dundee and the University of Abertay Dundee which was founded as the Dundee Institute of Technology in 1988. The university is noted for its computing and creative technology courses, particularly in computer games technology, and is where the makers of Grand Theft Auto started out.
The city of York in North Yorkshire is a flourishing city with long and interesting history and is only two hours by train from London. The city is known around the world for its exquisite architecture, its many cobbled streets and of course the iconic York Minster. For a slightly different perspective on the city why not visit The York Army Museum which explores the history of two of Yorkshire's famous regiments, the Royal Dragoon Guards and the Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire. The museum has over eighty showcases displaying military artifacts collected over 300 years. Alternatively, for a more relaxing and contemplative experience visit the nearby 12th century Rievaulx Abbey located in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The Abbey became one of England's wealthiest monasteries before its dissolution by King Henry VIII in 1538. There is an indoor interactive museum and the Work of God and Man exhibition which shows how religion mixed with business in the lives of the monks. Whilst at the Abbey there are plenty of walking and cycling routes to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
