The city of Plymouth lies between the River Plym and the River Tamar in the south west of England. Both rivers flow into Plymouth Sound, a natural harbour. Plymouth Sound is protected from the sea by the Plymouth Breakwater, which has been in use since 1814. In the Sound is Drake's Island which is seen from Plymouth Hoe, a flat public area on top of limestone cliffs. The River Tamar forms the county boundary between Devon and Cornwall and its estuary upon which Devonport Dockyard sits.
Due to its position on the coast, Plymouth has historically had a maritime based economy particular in the defence sector. Devonport Dockyard is the United Kingdom's only naval base that refits nuclear submarines. Plymouth also has the largest grouping of maritime businesses in the south west of England. The city also has the Plymouth Gin Distillery which has been producing Plymouth Gin since 1793.
Built in 1815, Union Street was at the heart of Plymouth's historical culture. It became known as the servicemen's playground, as it was where sailors from the Royal Navy would seek entertainment of all kinds. During the 1930s, there were 30 pubs and it attracted such performers as Charlie Chaplin to the New Palace Theatre. It is now the late-night hub of Plymouth's entertainment strip.
Located in the West Midlands region of England, the city of Coventry is the region's second largest city after Birmingham. One of the main visitor attractions in the city is the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum whose permanent gallery spaces include sculpture, Old Masters paintings, art since 1900, local history and natural history. The Coventry Transport Museum is also another major attraction in the city. The Museum is free to enter and contains the largest collection of British-made road vehicles in the world. It also exhibits are the world speed record breaking cars, Thrust2 and ThrustSSC.
Roughly four miles from the city centre is the Lunt Fort which is a reconstructed Roman fort on its original site. Coventry was also one of the main centres of watchmaking during the 18th and 19th centuries and as the industry declined, the skilled workers were key to setting up the cycle trade. A group of local enthusiasts founded a museum in Spon Street.
Coventry is 19 miles from the city of Birmingham, 24 miles from Leicester, 30 miles from Lichfield, 37 miles from Wolverhampton and 43 miles from Worcester.
