Lincoln Cathedral, or The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln to give it its full name, is located in the Lincolnshire city of Lincoln. The cathedral is the seat of the Bishop of Lincoln. Construction of the cathedral began in 1088 and continued throughout the medieval period. Between 1311 and 1549 it was supposed to have been the tallest structure in the world. The cathedral features two major rose windows, which are an uncommon feature among medieval architecture in England. On the north side of the cathedral there is the “Dean's Eye” which survives from the original structure of the building and on the south side there is the “Bishop's Eye” which was most likely rebuilt circa 1325–1350.
Lincoln also has a number of museums and galleries including the Harding House Gallery which is housed in a 15th century building within the Cathedral Quarter. There is also the Lincoln Art Works, which is an independent art gallery located just off the High Street in Lincoln's Cultural Quarter, and the Museum of Lincolnshire Life in the Cathedral Quarter which celebrates the county's rich history.
The city of Chester lies close to the border with Wales and is located in the north west of England in the county of Cheshire. There are many things to do in the city including visiting the Roman walls and wandering along The Groves or around the historic market town. The Groves is Chester's own promenade that runs alongside the River Dee from Grosvenor Park to the Old Handlebridge. The Groves was established as a promenade in the early 18th century.
For visitors interested in horse racing, Chester Racecourse is located on the Roodee which was originally the site of the Roman Port. If visitors want to see some of the racing action for free then the Roman walls walk you right past a view of the action.
Roman remains can still be seen in the city, particularly in the basements of some of the city's buildings and also in the lower parts of the northern section of the city walls. Perhaps the most important feature is the amphitheatre just outside the walls. Roman artifacts are on display in the Roman Gardens which run parallel to the city walls from Newgate to the River Dee.
