The cathedral city of Exeter, in south west England, was the most south westerly Roman settlement in Britain and its historic cathedral, founded in the 12th century, became Anglican at the time of the reformation in the 16th century.
Exeter has a vibrant cultural scene. The Northcott Theatre, which is located on the campus of Exeter University, is one of only a few provincial theatres in England that has retained its own repertory company. The company put on an annual open air Shakespeare production in the grounds of Rougemont Castle and it is well respected nationally. The Northcott Theatre is the city's replacement to the Theatre Royal which was demolished in the 1960's. Exeter also has a number of other theatres. The New Theatre is home to the Cygnet Training Theatre and the Barnfield Theatre is a charity and is used for both professional and amateur productions.
Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Queen Street holds significant and diverse collections in areas such as zoology, anthropology, fine art, local and overseas archaeology, and geology. In 2012 the museum was awarded the United Kingdom's "Museum of the Year" by The Art Fund charity citing its "ambition and imagination".
The city of Gloucester is located in the county of Gloucestershire and lies close to the border with Wales. The city, which also lies on the River Severn, has a rich past dating back to Roman times. At the heart of the city, and standing in College Green, is the Norman cathedral with its breathtaking fan-vaulted cloisters and great east window. From the cathedral it is only a short walk down narrow cobbled streets, past historical buildings, to the main shopping area in the city. From there it is, once again, a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its now converted warehouses. In the docks you are likely to see all manner of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. The city is also an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area and take in the splendour of the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. The Cotswolds is an area of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The Forest of Dean is an area of mixed ancient woodland and forms a roughly triangular plateau bounded by the River Wye to the west and north, the River Severn to the south, and the City of Gloucester to the east.
