The cathedral city of Gloucester is the county town of Gloucestershire and lies very close to the border with Wales. The city is roughly 30 miles to the north east of Bristol and 45 miles to the south west of Birmingham. Gloucester lies on the banks of the River Severn and is bounded by the Cotswolds to the east, the Forest of Dean to the west and the Malvern Hills to the north. Interestingly Gloucester is also a port city being linked to the Severn Estuary by the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal. Following renovation the city's former wharfs and warehouses form a public open space, are home to the National Waterways Museum and a number of apartments, shops and bars.
Gloucester Cathedral is in the north of the city close to the river and originates in the foundation of an abbey dedicated to St Peter in 681. The cathedral is the burial place of King Edward II and its cloisters were used for some scenes in some of the Harry Potter movies.
Gloucester's main theatre is the Guildhall which hosts a large and diverse number of entertainments including live music, dance sessions, a cinema, bar, cafe and art gallery.
Located in north east England, the city of Newcastle upon Tyne (usually known as just Newcastle) is a regional capital situated north of the River Tyne. Newcastle is the county town of Northumberland and has many attractions for visitors to see and do including the famous Tyne Bridge, the Discovery Museum and St James' Park football ground, home to Newcastle United Football Club. Newcastle's cathedral dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries and is topped with a crown like structure and arches that support a lantern. Inside the cathedral and behind the high altar is one of the largest funeral brasses in England. Running along both sides of the River Tyne is the Metro that connects Newcastle with various historic attractions and the sandy beaches at Whitley Bay and Tynemouth. Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena is a purpose-built concert and exhibition venue that attracts some of the biggest names in music, as well as comedy and exciting sporting events, ice shows and family performances. Newcastle City Hall, which opened in 1927 and is smaller in size than the Metro Radio Arena, was the city’s first dedicated concert hall and continues to be a popular venue for rock, pop and comedy.
