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.
Located in the county of West Yorkshire, the city of Wakefield is at the centre of the United Kingdom's communications network with excellent transport links by road, rail and air to the rest of the United Kingdom. The Pennines lie to the west of the city which itself is located on the River Calder.
Local bus services are provided by Arriva and Stagecoach who offer passengers destinations throughout the city and beyond.

The bus operates throughout the day on a circular route linking Wakefield's two train stations, the bus station and the main shopping areas.
The site of a battle during the Wars of the Roses and a Royalist stronghold during the Civil War, Wakefield developed in spite of setbacks to become an important market town and centre for wool, exploiting its position on the navigable River Calder to become an inland port. During the 18th century Wakefield continued to develop through trade in corn, coal mining and textiles, and in 1888 its parish church, with Saxon origins, acquired cathedral status.
