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.
Located in the county of Gloucestershire, the historic city of Gloucester lies on the River Severn and is close to the Welsh border. Gloucester is a friendly, relaxed and safe city. Recent developments have seen the city emerge as a key regional centre with a lifestyle and culture of its own. It is entirely possible to while away an entire afternoon and evening in one of the many coffee shops and pubs.
In the heart of the city in College Green is the Norman cathedral with its fan vaulted cloisters and great east window. The nearby pedestrianised shopping area can be reached by a walk down narrow cobbled streets, passing ancient buildings on the way. From the shopping area it is a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its impressive converted warehouses. In the dock you will see many different kinds of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. Pleasure boats also depart from here that will take you on a journey through the past when Gloucester was a thriving commercial port.
The wider Gloucester Quays area is a favourite for visitors, with a great mix of waterside museums, bars, cafes, restaurants and Designer Outlet shopping plus beautiful new communal squares, walkways and dramatic public art, all nestling comfortably alongside the docks’ maritime heritage.
