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.

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 North Yorkshire, the historic city of York is an ancient cathedral city with a history that dates back to before Roman times. York is frequently ranked with Manchester as the second most visited city in England after London and is, of course, famous for giving its name to the city and state of New York in the United States.
The roads within the old city (i.e. within the city walls and to the north of the River Ouse) are pedestrianised between 8:00am and 4pm and most of the sights are only a short walk between one another. The city centre is small enough to walk from one side to the other in around 20 minutes.
For cyclists York is one of the most cycle-friendly cities in the United Kingdom. There is an extensive network of cycle routes in and around the city, and most of the traffic controls have been set up to give cyclists priority. The river path along the Ouse contains some wonderful bike routes out of the city.

The official festivals are the Viking Festival, the Festival of Angels, Early Music, Late Music, Horse Racing (the "Ebor Race Meeting"), Multicultural Food and Arts, Chinese New Year, Mystery Plays, Christmas St Nicholas' Fair, and the Food and Drink Festival.
