The city of Durham's old commercial area included the peninsular on three sides, following the River Wear. The peninsular was surrounded by the castle wall which ran from the castle keep and included two gatehouses on the north side and the west side of the enclosure. The Victorians removed the city wall but retained the gatehouse which still remains standing on the Bailey.
Durham's medieval city comprised the cathedral, castle and administrative buildings on the peninsular. The area around the North Road part of the city underwent a transformation during the 1960's which was championed by Durham City Council. Most of the medieval street plan remains although most of the medieval buildings have disappeared apart from the House of Correction and the Chapel of Saint Andrew which are both under Elvet Bridge.
The River Wear provides around 1800 m of river that can be rowed on, stretching from Old Durham Beck in the east to the weir next to Durham School Boat Club's boat house in the west. This includes the 700 m straight used for most of the Durham Regatta races and some challenging navigation through the arches of Elvet Bridge, reputed to be the narrowest row through bridge in Europe, and the bends of the river round the peninsula.
The cathedral city of Chichester is located on the south coast of England in the county of West Sussex. There are plenty of things to do and see in Chichester in addition to marvelling at the city's cathedral. Visit Pallant House, the Ox Market Art Galleries, Fishbourne's famous Roman Palace, Tangmere Aviation Museum or walk the ancient city walls. For a less leisurely time the city can also offer visitors a number of activities including watersports, golf and dedicated cycle tracks to explore. Located a few miles from the centre of Chichester is the Goodwood Estate which is set in over twelve thousand acres in the Sussex Downs. The Estate is home to motor racing, horse racing, golf and a stunning art collection in the House. The house and its immediate grounds are the site of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed, whilst elsewhere on the estate the Goodwood Motor Circuit hosts the annual Goodwood Revival Meeting, and Goodwood Racecourse hosts Glorious Goodwood and a number of other race meetings. The estate also includes the Goodwood Golf Course and a cricket pitch, home to Goodwood Cricket Club.
