The city of Preston was granted city status in 2002 and is located in the north west of England in the county of Lancashire. Preston was transformed during the 19th century from a small market town to a much larger industrial town. Innovations which occurred during the second half of the 19th century, such as Richard Arkwright's water frame (which was invented in Preston) attracted cotton mills to many northern towns in England, including Preston. The prosperity of the town led to it becoming the first town in England after London to be lit by gas.
The River Ribble forms Preston's southern border and the Forest of Bowland lies beyond the city and the Fylde coastal plain lies to the west. There are a number of museums worth visiting in the city. These include the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, the Broughton Cottage Museum, the Queen's Lancashire Regiment Museum and the Ribble Steam Railway. The city, and its surrounding area, is also home to a number of nature reserves: Grange Valley, Holls and Hollows, Pope Lane Field and Boilton Wood and the Fishwick Nature Reserve.
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.
