The city of Liverpool, located on the Liverpool Bay of the Irish Sea, has been described as having "the most splendid setting of any English city" . Liverpool; is roughly 180 miles to the north west of London and is built across a ridge of sandstone hills which are around 230 feet above sea level at their highest point at Everton Hill. This also marks the southern point of the West Lancashire Plain. Separating Liverpool from the Wirral Peninsular is the estuary of the River Mersey which flows from Stockport in Greater Manchester to Liverpool Bay.
Liverpool was a pioneer city in many fields. In the arts it was home to the first lending library, athenaeum society, arts centre and public art conservation centre. The city is also home to the oldest surviving classical orchestra and the oldest surviving repertory theatre, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Liverpool Playhouse respectively.
Liverpool's iconic catholic cathedral, the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, was completed in 1967 and is the seat of the Archbishop of Liverpool and is a Grade II* Listed building. The cathedral is sometimes referred to as "Paddy's Wigwam" or the "Mersey Funnel" by local people.
The historic city of Edinburgh is Scotland's capital city where its ancient past meets a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with an amazing backdrop. Visitors to Edinburgh can take in its stunning scenery, breathtaking architecture and fine food. The city is surrounded by a beautiful coastline and countryside in the nearby Lothians. The city is the world's festival capital, with the Edinburgh Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city sits atop a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags which rise from the flat landscape of the Lothians with the sheltered shoreline of the Firth of Forth to the north. The city skyline is dominated by Edinburgh Castle where, from its ramparts, visitors can gaze down on medieval lanes and elegant terraces that contain over a thousand years of history. On the night of 30 April the Beltane Fire Festival takes place on Calton Hill, involving a procession followed by scenes inspired by pagan old spring fertility celebrations. At the beginning of October each year the Dussehra Hindu Festival is also held on Calton Hill. 'Edinburgh,' said writer Robert Louis Stevenson, 'is what Paris ought to be'.
