The East Midlands city of Nottingham, famed for its Lace making and the legend of Robin Hood, is home to two universities: Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham. Many of the industrial buildings in the city have been redeveloped and have helped modern day Nottingham become a thriving centre for education and commerce. The Lace Market, which is to the south of Hockley, has many streets full of red brick warehouses which have been converted into apartments, bars and restaurants. Adams Building is now used by New College Nottingham.
Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem (The Trip), partially built into the cave system beneath Nottingham Castle, is a contender for the title of "England's Oldest Pub" due to its supposed establishment in 1189. However, The Bell Inn on the Old Market Square, and Ye Olde Salutation Inn (The Salutation) on Maid Marian Way, have both supposed to have disputed this claim. Whichever is the case it is safe to say that Nottingham has several public houses that date back to around the 11th century, or perhaps earlier.
There are two main shopping centres in Nottingham: Victoria Centre and the Broadmarsh Centre. The Victoria Centre was established on the site of the former Nottingham Victoria railway station, and was the first to be built in the city.
The city of Chester lies close to the border with Wales and is located in the north west of England in the county of Cheshire. There are many things to do in the city including visiting the Roman walls and wandering along The Groves or around the historic market town. The Groves is Chester's own promenade that runs alongside the River Dee from Grosvenor Park to the Old Handlebridge. The Groves was established as a promenade in the early 18th century.
For visitors interested in horse racing, Chester Racecourse is located on the Roodee which was originally the site of the Roman Port. If visitors want to see some of the racing action for free then the Roman walls walk you right past a view of the action.
Roman remains can still be seen in the city, particularly in the basements of some of the city's buildings and also in the lower parts of the northern section of the city walls. Perhaps the most important feature is the amphitheatre just outside the walls. Roman artifacts are on display in the Roman Gardens which run parallel to the city walls from Newgate to the River Dee.
