The city of Lancaster, which is located in the north west of England, has a number of theatres and live performance venues. The Lancaster Grand, the Dukes and the Yorkshire House are three fine examples. The city also hosts "The Play in the Park" which is a series of open air performances in the city's award winning Williamson Park. In addition, the city's university also hosts many theatrical productions, live music, exhibitions and contemporary dance performances.
Long existing as a commercial, cultural and educational centre, Lancaster is the settlement that gives Lancashire its name. Lancaster has several unique ties to the British monarchy; the House of Lancaster was a branch of the English royal family, whilst the Duchy of Lancaster holds large estates on behalf of Elizabeth II, who herself is also the Duke of Lancaster. Lancaster was granted city status in 1937 for its "long association with the crown" and because it was "the county town of the King's Duchy of Lancaster". The city's name, first recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Loncastre, where "Lon" refers to the River Lune, and "castre", from the Old English cæster for "fort", refers to the Roman fort which stood at the site.
The city of Coventry in the West Midlands, England, is roughly an hour from London and twenty minutes from the city of Birmingham. There are plenty of things to do and see throughout the year including festivals, exhibitions, concerts and theatre performances. There is something for all the family. One of the most fascinating monuments in the city today is the remnants of its original city walls and gates which were built in the 14th century. The construction work began at New Gate and was initially completed around 1400. Visitors can still find examples of the old wall to this day, including the magnificently well-preserved wall link between Cook Street Gate and Swanswell Gate that runs right through Lady Herbert’s Garden. The wall measured approximately 2.2 miles right around, containing 32 towers and 12 gatehouses in total. The city walls were demolished in 1662 on the orders of King Charles II as a punishment for Coventry’s housing of Parliamentarians during the war. The remaining wall is protected under law and are classified as Grade I listed buildings and a scheduled monument.
