Liverpool is a city located in the metropolitan borough of Merseyside in the north west of England. The city lies on the eastern side of the River Mersey Estuary which led its development as an important seaport which led to the city's urbanisation and expansion. The port is also the reason why Liverpool has am ethnically diverse population which, for historical reasons, includes many people from Ireland. The city also has the oldest Black African community in the United Kingdom and the oldest Chinese community in Europe.
Liverpool has a world famous reputation for its music which is perhaps why it was labelled the World Capital of Pop by Guinness World Records. Famous artists and bands from the city include The Beatles, Billy Fury, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Echo & the Bunnymen and Frankie Goes to Hollywood to name just a few.
Liverpool is more than just its port and musical heritage. Parts of the city centre were declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2004 including the Pier Head, Albert Dock and William Brown Street.
Liverpool also has a rich sporting heritage and is home to two of the English Premier League's top clubs: Liverpool Football Club and Everton Football Club. Matches between the two clubs are referred to as the "Merseyside Derby". Liverpool is also home to Aintree Racecourse which holds the annual world famous Grand National.
The city of Preston was granted city status in 2002 and is located in the north west of England in the county of Lancashire. Preston was transformed during the 19th century from a small market town to a much larger industrial town. Innovations which occurred during the second half of the 19th century, such as Richard Arkwright's water frame (which was invented in Preston) attracted cotton mills to many northern towns in England, including Preston. The prosperity of the town led to it becoming the first town in England after London to be lit by gas.
The River Ribble forms Preston's southern border and the Forest of Bowland lies beyond the city and the Fylde coastal plain lies to the west. There are a number of museums worth visiting in the city. These include the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, the Broughton Cottage Museum, the Queen's Lancashire Regiment Museum and the Ribble Steam Railway. The city, and its surrounding area, is also home to a number of nature reserves: Grange Valley, Holls and Hollows, Pope Lane Field and Boilton Wood and the Fishwick Nature Reserve.
