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.
With Birmingham to the south and the counties of Staffordshire and Shropshire lying to the north and east respectively, Wolverhampton is a city in the West Midlands region of England. Wolverhampton has two indoor shopping centres, the Mander Centre and the Wulfrun Centre. These, along with the pedestrianised parts of the city offer shoppers a mix of national stores and independent retailers. There is also a busy indoor market which is open every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday along with a Craft and Farmers Market held on the first Friday of every month on Dudley Street.
