Leicester is a city in the East Midlands of England and county town of Leicestershire which lies on the River Soar. The city also lies at the edge of the National Forest which is an environmental project run by the national Forest Company. It is an attempt to blend ancient woodland with new plantings in order to create a new national forest. Leicester has a number of scheduled monuments which include the 15th century Belgrave Bridge, the 12th century Leicester Abbey and medieval Leicester Castle.
The city has two main shopping centres which are the Haymarket Shopping Centre and Highcross Leicester. In additional there is the smaller St Martin's Square shopping centre and Leicester Lanes where there are a number of designer and specialist shops. Leicester has a large multi cultural population and the Golden Mile is a stretch of Belgrave Road known for its authentic Indian restaurants, sari shops and jewellers.
Leicester also hosts many cultural events including the annual Pride Parade, a Caribbean Carnival which is the largest in the UK outside London, the largest Diwali celebration outside of India and one of the largest comedy festivals in the UK, the Leicester Comedy Festival. The city also has a film festival, the Leicester International Short Film Festival, which is an annual event which is held every November.
Located in East Sussex, the coastal town and resort of Brighton is around 50 miles to the south of London. The city is known for its oriental architecture and large gay community. Due to its close proximity to London it has become popular with media and music types who choose not to live in London. This is led to the city sometimes called "London-by-the-Sea".
In the summer, the pebble beach in Brighton is full of tourists and Brightonians alike. Poi twirlers strike a beautiful image against the sunsets, and flaming lanterns are launched into the air on summer evenings. To the east of Brighton there is a designated nudist beach. The pebble beach gives way to a flat sandy seabed just below mid tide line so time your swimming to the low tide and avoid the painful feet. Just beyond the Marina is an area for surfers and local fishermen cast their rods from the Marina or by the giant doughnut.
The Brighton Festival, featuring music, arts exhibitions, book debates and much more is the second biggest arts festival in the UK after the Edinburgh Festival. The Brighton Festival Fringe runs at the same time as the main Arts Festival and usually comprises over 600 events including comedy, theatre, music and 'open houses'.
