About Hull

Hull, officially known as Kingston upon Hull, is a city located in the East Riding of Yorkshire and stands on the River Hull at its junction with the Humber estuary. The city can trace its origins back to the 12th century where the monks of Meaux Abbey needed a port where the wool from their estate could be exported.

Hull's visitor attractions include the Historic Old Town and Museum Quarter, Hull Marina and The Deep. Hull has a large number of parks and green spaces which include East Park, Pearson Park, Pickering Park and West Park. West Park is home to Hull's KC Stadium. Pearson Park contains a lake and a 'Victorian Conservatory' housing birds and reptiles. East Park has a large boating lake and a collection of birds and animals. East Park and Pearson Park are registered Grade II listed sites by English Heritage. The city centre has the large Queen's Gardens parkland at its heart. This was originally built as formal ornamental gardens used to fill in the former Queen's Dock. It is now a more flexible grassed and landscaped area used for concerts and festivals, but retains a large ornamental flower circus and fountain at its western end.

About Edinburgh

The city of Edinburgh in Scotland has a rich history which has resulted in the city having many historic buildings. Examples include Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the churches of St Giles, Greyfriars and the Canongate. Edinburgh also has an international reputation as a centre of learning particularly in medicine, science and engineering. The University of Edinburgh, which was founded in 1583, was recently placed 17th in the QS World University Rankings 2013, and is one of four universities in the city.

The city is also famous for the Edinburgh International Festival, which, since its inception in 1947, has grown – largely as a result of the "Fringe" and other associated events – into the biggest annual international arts festival in the world. The Festival is usually held over three weeks from the middle of August and brings top class performers of music (especially classical music), theatre, opera and dance from around the world to perform. The festival also hosts a series of visual art exhibitions, talks and workshops. However, the main festival has been overtaken in size and popularity by the Edinburgh Fringe which initially began as a range of alternative acts alongside the 'official' Festival and has progressed to become the largest performing arts festival in th world.
