Norwich is a city and county ton of Norfolk in the East Anglia region on England. The city lies on the River Wensum and in May 2012 it was designated England's first UNESCO City of Literature. Norwich has a rich history of art, literature and publishing which continues to the present day. Norwich had the first provincial library in England, opened in 1608, and the city newspaper, the Norwich Post, was the first provincial newspaper outside London in 1701. Today, Norwich accounts for 5% of the United Kingdom's independent publishing output.
Visitors to Norwich are attracted to its cathedral, its cobbled streets, the museums of old Norwich, Norwich Castle, Cow Tower, Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum, Dragon Hall and The Forum. In addition to its architecture and monuments Norwich is also in the UK's top 10 destinations for shopping. The city has a good blend of national chain retailers and independent shops. Norwich Market is also one of the largest outdoor markets in England.
Each year the Norfolk and Norwich Festival celebrates the arts, drawing many visitors into the city from all over eastern England. The Norwich Twenty Group, founded in 1944, presents exhibitions of its members to promote awareness of modern art. Norwich was home to the first arts festival in Britain in 1772.
Located in the foothills of the Pennines, the West Yorkshire city of Bradford has a culturally diverse population with many immigrants from County Mayo and Sligo in Ireland and Jewish wool merchants from Germany who came to the city in the 19th century. More recently many immigrants from south Asia, particularly from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, came during the 1950's and 1960's.
Bradford's textile industry has been in decline since the 1950's and many of its mills have been redeveloped. The grandest of the mills no longer used for textile production is Lister's Mill, the chimney of which can be seen from most places in Bradford. It has become a beacon of regeneration after a £100 million conversion to apartment blocks.
Bradford City Park, now home to the Bradford Festival which includes the Mela, is a six-acre public space in the heart of Bradford which contains the largest man-made water feature in any UK city - a 4,000sq m mirror pool featuring more than 100 fountains, including the tallest in any UK city at 30 meters. When the mirror pool is drained City Park is capable of holding events such as carnivals, markets, theatre productions, screenings and community festivals.
