The city of Edinburgh is located in Lothian on the southern shore of the Firth or Forth and is Scotland's capital city. It has been regarded as Scotland's capital since at least the 15th century but political power moved south to London after the Union of the Crowns in 1603 and the Union of Parliaments in 1707. Edinburgh has a rich history and as a consequence has many historic buildings including Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Place, the churches of St. Giles, Greyfriars and Canongate.
The historic centre of Edinburgh is divided in two by Princes Street Gardens. To the south the view is dominated by Edinburgh Castle which is built high on the castle rock, and the long sweep of the Old Town descending towards Holyrood Palace. To the north lie Princes Street and the New Town. Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The city is home to many national institutions including the National Museum of Scotland, the National Library of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery. In terms of trade and commerce Edinburgh has long been a centre of banking and insurance and is now the United Kingdom's second largest financial centre after London.
Brighton is a coastal town and resort in East Sussex, England. The 11th century St Nicholas Church is the oldest building in Brighton, commonly known as "The Mother Church". Other notable churches include the large brick-built St Bartholomew's, St Peter's and St. Martin's, noted for its decorated interior. Brighton's Quakers run the Friends' Meeting House in the Lanes and there is also an active Unitarian community based in a Grade II listed building in New Road, and a Spiritualist church in Norfolk Square. There are also a number of New Age outlets and groups. The seafront has bars, restaurants, nightclubs, sports facilities and amusement arcades, mainly located between the two piers. Being less than an hour from London by train has made the city a popular destination. Brighton's beach is a shingle beach at high tide with a flat sandy foreshore at low water, and has been awarded a blue flag. Brighton also has a nudist area which is by Kemptown near the easterly edge of the promenade. The Monarch's Way long-distance footpath heads west along the seafront above the beach.
