Inverness is a city located in the Scottish Highlands and is the administrative centre of the Highland council area. The name means "Mouth of the River Ness" and the city lies where the River Ness, which flows from the nearby Loch Ness, enters the Moray Firth. Culloden Moor lies nearby, and was the site of the Battle of Culloden in 1746, which ended the Jacobite Rising of 1745–1746. The city centre lies on the east bank of the River Ness and is linked to the opposite bank by three road bridges: Ness Bridge, Friars Bridge and the Black (or Waterloo) Bridge. There is also a footbridge, the Greig Street Bridge, which connects to the two banks.
Inverness has good transport links. There is a direct link to the Black Isle across the Moray Firth by the Kessock Bridge and the city's railway station provides passengers with links to many towns and cities across Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom including Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Aberdeen and Thurso. Inverness also has an airport, located about 10 miles from the city, and provides scheduled flights to London, Manchester, Belfast and to many other cities across the UK.
The city of Derby is located in the East Midlands region of England and is the United Kingdom's most central city. Museums and galleries in the city include Pickford's House Museum which was built by architect Joseph Pickford in 1770 and was his home and business headquarters. Derby Museum and Art Gallery shows paintings by Joseph Wright, as well as fine Royal Crown Derby porcelain, natural history, local regiments and archaeology. Derby has the first public recreational park in the country to have an arboretum, the Derby Arboretum, which lies to the south of the city centre. The arboretum was set up by the philanthropic landowner and industrialist Joseph Strutt in 1840. The arboretum's website states that the arboretum's design was the inspiration for the vision of great urban parks in the United States, notably Central Park in New York City. Markeaton Park is Derby's most used leisure facility and is the venue for the city council's annual Guy Fawkes Night firework display and contains its own light railway. Other major parks in the city include Allestree Park, Darley Park, Chaddesden Park, Alvaston Park, Normanton Park and Osmaston Park.
