Southampton is the largest city in Hampshire on the south coast of England. The city lies at the northern tip of Southampton Water, where the rivers Test and Itchen converge. The River Test runs along the western edge of the city. It is roughly 75 miles to the south west of London and around 20 miles to the west of Portsmouth. The Port of Southampton is a major cruise ship terminal and ferry port. The ferryport is no longer home to any international ferry operations but it is the terminus for three ferry services to the Isle if Wight. Southampton's tradition of luxury cruising began in around 1840. Many of the world's largest cruise ships can regularly be seen in the port including vessels from Royal Caribbean and Carnival Corporation, which includes brands including Princess Cruises and Cunard Line.
Southampton has two large live music venues, the Mayflower Theatre and the Guildhall. The Guildhall has seen concerts from a wide range of popular artists including Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Manic Street Preachers, The Killers, The Kaiser Chiefs and Amy Winehouse. It also hosts classical concerts presented by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, City of Southampton Orchestra, Southampton Concert Orchestra, Southampton Philharmonic Choir and Southampton Choral Society.
Brighton is a coastal town and resort in East Sussex, England. The 11th century St Nicholas Church is the oldest building in Brighton, commonly known as "The Mother Church". Other notable churches include the large brick-built St Bartholomew's, St Peter's and St. Martin's, noted for its decorated interior. Brighton's Quakers run the Friends' Meeting House in the Lanes and there is also an active Unitarian community based in a Grade II listed building in New Road, and a Spiritualist church in Norfolk Square. There are also a number of New Age outlets and groups. The seafront has bars, restaurants, nightclubs, sports facilities and amusement arcades, mainly located between the two piers. Being less than an hour from London by train has made the city a popular destination. Brighton's beach is a shingle beach at high tide with a flat sandy foreshore at low water, and has been awarded a blue flag. Brighton also has a nudist area which is by Kemptown near the easterly edge of the promenade. The Monarch's Way long-distance footpath heads west along the seafront above the beach.
