The Gloucestershire city of Gloucester as a number of medieval and Tudor period gabled and half timbered houses which date back to Gloucester's early history. An example of a public house from this period, and the only remaining example in the city, is The New Inn in Northgate Street. The building was constructed in 1450 by John Twyning.
The city also hosts the annual Three Choirs Festival every third year. The festival dates back to the eighteenth century and is one of the oldest music festivals in the United Kingdom. Gloucester hosts the festival with the cities of Hereford and Worcester and is next to host the festival in 2016. Other festivals held in the city include the annual Gloucester International Rhythm and Blues Festival which takes place at the end of July.

Located in the county of Norfolk, the city of Norwich was England's second city from medieval times through to the Industrial Revolution. Norman invaders gave the city its castle and the Anglican cathedral and as the city grew so did its defensive wall and medieval street layout, which remains intact. Like any great city its centre is easy to walk around and has a river at its heart. Notable landmarks and attractions in the city, the "Norwich 12" include the Edwardian Surrey House, the Georgian grandeur of the Assembly House, St James Mill, The Forum and the Millennium Building. Norwich is a great city to explore on foot. Why not take a stroll from the thirteenth century Adam and Eve public house (the oldest in the city) around the river Wensum, past the unique Cow Tower, to Pulls Ferry, one of the original entrance gates to the Cathedral precinct. A canal was built through this gate to ferry the stone brought from Caen in France, which was used to build the Castle and Cathedral. If you want a great view of the city go up Mousehold Heath to the north-east, close to the nineteenth century prison. From there you will see many of the city's most historic buildings.
