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 Derby is located in the East Midlands region of England and is the United Kingdom's most central city. Museums and galleries in the city include Pickford's House Museum which was built by architect Joseph Pickford in 1770 and was his home and business headquarters. Derby Museum and Art Gallery shows paintings by Joseph Wright, as well as fine Royal Crown Derby porcelain, natural history, local regiments and archaeology. Derby has the first public recreational park in the country to have an arboretum, the Derby Arboretum, which lies to the south of the city centre. The arboretum was set up by the philanthropic landowner and industrialist Joseph Strutt in 1840. The arboretum's website states that the arboretum's design was the inspiration for the vision of great urban parks in the United States, notably Central Park in New York City. Markeaton Park is Derby's most used leisure facility and is the venue for the city council's annual Guy Fawkes Night firework display and contains its own light railway. Other major parks in the city include Allestree Park, Darley Park, Chaddesden Park, Alvaston Park, Normanton Park and Osmaston Park.
