The development of the city of Leicester is strongly linked to the completion of the Grand Union Canal in 1790 which linked Leicester to London and Birmingham, and also to the arrival of the railways in 1832. This process of industrialisation continued throughout the reign of Queen Victoria with the appearance of factories along the canal and the River Soar and of mills in districts such as Frog Island and Woodgate.
The city is the county town of Leicestershire in the East Midlands of England. Lying at the edge of the National Forest and on the River Soar, the city has a number of historical monuments including the 15th century Belgrave Bridge and the 12th century Leicester Abbey and medieval Leicester Castle.
Shopping in the city is divided between the Haymarket Shopping Centre, Highcross Leicester, St Martin's Square and Leicester Lanes. Leicester is also home to the largest outdoor covered marketplace in Europe. Leicester Market sells fruit, vegetables, fresh fish and meat and also hosts festivals which are organised by Leicester City Council. The market was given royal consent in 1229 by Henry III. Other markets in Leicester include Beaumont Leys Market. There are other markets, including the farmer's market and the continental markets usually held on Humberstone Gate or Gallowtree Gate.
Located in north east Scotland, the city of Dundee is over 800 years old and is the fourth largest city in Scotland. The city is undergoing a transformation with a £300 million master plan to regenerate Dundee Waterfront which is expected to last for a 30-year period between 2001 and 2031. The aims of the project will be to reconnect the city centre to the waterfront, to improve facilities for walking, cyclists and buses, to replacing the existing inner ring road with a pair of east/west tree lined boulevards, build a new civic square and a regenerated railway station and arrival space at the western edge. A new Victoria and Albert museum is also being built which is set to be completed by 2015.
Dundee is also a key retail destination for north east Scotland. The city centre offers a wide variety of retailers, department stores, independent and specialist stores. The Murraygate and High Street forms the main pedestrian area and is home to a number of national stores. Other retail areas in the city include Gallagher Retail Park, Kingsway East Retail Park and Kingsway West Retail Park.
