Nottingham is a city and county town of Nottinghamshire in the East Midlands of England. The city is famed for its link to the legend of Robin Hood and is also renowned for its lace making, bicycle and tobacco industries. Visitors to Nottingham have a huge range of things to do and places and buildings to see. Some of Nottingham's famous venues include the National Ice Centre, the National Water Sports Centre, its Test cricket ground, Trent Bridge, two professional football teams (Nottingham Forest and Notts County), and successful cricket and ice hockey teams.
Culturally, Nottingham is spoilt for choice. In addition to its vast range of bars, restaurants and night clubs the city has two large theatres, many museums and art galleries, an independent cinema and several live music venues including the Nottingham Arena and Rock City.
Nottingham has many different architectural styles with buildings dating back to the 12th century. The centre of Nottingham is usually regarded as the Old Market Square which is the largest city square in the UK. The square is overlooked by the Council House which was built in the 1920's and has baroque columns and stone statues of two lions at the front to stand guard over the square. On the ground floor of the Council House, Exchange Arcade is an upmarket shopping centre which has a number of high end boutiques.
The historic university city of Oxford is located in the county of Oxfordshire and is roughly 35 miles to the east of Cheltenham and 30 miles to the south west of Milton Keynes. Although known for its university the economy of Oxford is also reliant on car making, publishing, science and technology, bellfounding and brewing. Several of the University's colleges had private breweries which includes Brasenose College whose brewery survived until 1889.
Oxford used to be an important port of the River Thames, although the section of the Thames that runs through Oxford is called The Isis. To accommodate commercial traffic the Oxford-Burcot Commission in the 17th century took steps to improve the navigability of the river. The Oxford Canal was constructed in the 18th century in order to connect Oxford with the Midlands. Commercial traffic has given way to recreational use of the river and canal. Oxford was the original base of Salters Steamers and there is a regular service from Folly Bridge downstream to Abingdon and beyond.
Interesting attractions in the city include the Ashmolean Museum, the Bodleian Library, Christ Church Cathedral, The Headington Shark, the Museum of History and Science and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
