The Herefordshire city of Hereford 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. Hereford hosts the festival with the cities of Gloucester and Worcester. The city has a number of small galleries and celebrates art with an annual exhibition held in September called Herefordshire Art Week which displays the work of local artists. During the exhibition many public places are closed including the Bishop's Palace and the Cathedral.
The city has a number of historic buildings including The Old House which is a black and white house in the centre of the city. It is now a museum about the Jacobean era of the 1600's. Located in the city is the Hereford Cider Museum which contains a shop and a fully interactive guide on how to produce cider. The city also hosts The International Cider Festival which began in the 1980's and is held in the spring/summer.
The city was also home to Hereford Racecourse, a traditional National Hunt course to the north of the city centre which hosted around twenty meetings a year. Unfortunately the company who leased the site decided in 2012 that the site was not viable. The last meeting was held on 16 December 2012.
The city of Chester lies close to the border with Wales and is located in the north west of England in the county of Cheshire. There are many things to do in the city including visiting the Roman walls and wandering along The Groves or around the historic market town. The Groves is Chester's own promenade that runs alongside the River Dee from Grosvenor Park to the Old Handlebridge. The Groves was established as a promenade in the early 18th century.
For visitors interested in horse racing, Chester Racecourse is located on the Roodee which was originally the site of the Roman Port. If visitors want to see some of the racing action for free then the Roman walls walk you right past a view of the action.
Roman remains can still be seen in the city, particularly in the basements of some of the city's buildings and also in the lower parts of the northern section of the city walls. Perhaps the most important feature is the amphitheatre just outside the walls. Roman artifacts are on display in the Roman Gardens which run parallel to the city walls from Newgate to the River Dee.
