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 the county of Staffordshire, the city of Lichfield lies just to the north of Birmingham and is steeped in heritage with lots of things to do and see for the whole family. Whilst in the city why not pay a visit to the Georgian home of Erasmus Darwin, grandfather of Charles Darwin and leading doctor, botanist, inventor and poet of the 18th century. The house is located in the idyllic surroundings of Cathedral Close and contains many interactive displays and a herb garden. Any trip to Lichfield must include a visit to the 800 year old cathedral which has treasures including the 8th century St Chad Gospels, 16th century Flemish Glass, monuments by Chantrey and Epstein and the 20th century Lang Lichfield Silver Commission. Located a few miles from Lichfield is Drayton Manor Theme Park with some of the biggest, scariest and wettest rides around. Thrill seekers will love the adrenaline-inducing drop-tower, Apocalypse, stand-up coaster, Shockwave, splash-tastic log flume, Stormforce 10, gyro-swing, and Maelstrom. The park is also home to Europe's only Thomas Land™ which features 21 rides and attractions based on the popular Thomas & Friends™ TV series, including Cranky’s Drop Tower, the Troublesome Trucks Coaster and Winston’s Whistle Stop Tour.
