The north east city of Newcastle upon Tyne still retains its medieval street layout, and its narrow alleys are perhaps most prevalent around the riverside area of the city. Stairs from the riverside to higher parts of the city centre and the Castle Keep, which were originally recorded in the 14th century, still remain.
To the north west of the city centre is Leazes Park which was established in 1873 following a petition by local residents to have access to some open spaces for health and recreation. Just outside the park is St James' Park football stadium, home to Newcastle United Football Club. The stadium, which has a capacity of just over 52,000, dominates the view of the city from all directions. Another green space enjoyed by residents and visitors alike is Town Moor which is located to the north of the city centre. It is larger than London's Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath combined. In the south eastern corner of the city is Exhibition Park, which contains the only remaining pavilion from the North East Coast Exhibition of 1929. Since the 1970s this has housed the Newcastle Military Vehicle Museum although this is now closed.
The city of Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is located in south west England, a short distance from the city of Bristol which is 15 miles away. The city is famed for its Roman baths, medieval heritage and fine Georgian architecture.
The city is the only place in the United Kingdom where it is possible to bathe in natural hot springs. Unfortunately it is not possible to bathe in the Roman Bathes but visitors can be pampered at the Thermae bath Spa which is located close to the Roman baths. The spa uses the naturally occurring hot water which are filtered and remain in the warm indoor and outdoor roof top swimming pool.
There are many guided tours of the city which range from walking tours taking in the breathtaking architecture of the city to ghost tours to pub crawls. Most hotels, bars and restaurants have leaflets for many of the tours.
The city is also an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area. Nearby attractions include Stone Henge, Longleat Safari Park and Adventure Park or the picturesque villages of the Cotswolds.
