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 Scottish city of Stirling is located in the centre of Scotland where Highland mountains and lochs meet Lowland cities and is the gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Scotland’s first national park. The Old Town is like a walk through history with the Castle, mansions, town walls, graveyards and ghosts. Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling contains the Great Hall and the Renaissance Palace within the Castle that rivaled any building in Europe at the time. Stirling also has its medieval parish church, The Church of the Holy Rude, where King James VI was crowned King of Scots on 29 July 1567. The Holy Rude still functions as a living church with a service every Sunday. The best way to explore Stirling is on foot. Walks range from history trails and countryside rambles to a children’s quiz walk and ghost tours. For example, the Back Walk runs along the 16th century Town Walls with glimpses into Old Town gardens and views over King’s Park to the distant mountains. The city is also an active city. Apart from its own football and rugby teams, visitors can play a round of golf, go for a swim or go horse riding.
