Stirling is a city in Central Scotland and is clustered around a large fortress and medieval town. The city lies at the mouth of the River Forth and is sometimes regarded as the "Gateway to the Highlands". The city also lies close to the Highland Boundary Fault between the Scottish Highlands and the Scottish Lowlands. Visitors to the city can enjoy many historic buildings and monuments including the Great Hall which was restored in 1999 and the Renaissance Palace within the Castle. The city also has a medieval parish church, The Church of the Holy Rude, which is where King James VI was crowned King of Scots in 1567.
With Stirling's development as a market town and its location as the focus of transport and communications in the region, it has developed a substantial retail sector serving a wide range of surrounding communities as well as the city itself. Primarily centred on the city centre, there are a large number of chain stores, as well as the Thistles shopping centre. However this has been augmented by out-of-town developments such as the Springkerse Retail Park on the city bypass to the east of Stirling.
Stirling railway station provides excellent inter city, regional and local rail services throughout the United Kingdom.
The city of Birmingham, located in the West Midlands region of England, was known in Victorian times as the "City of a 1,000 trades" and the "Workshop of the World" which is recognition of the city's traditional industrial path.
The city centre is partially pedestrianised and most of the city's attractions can be reached on foot. Many visitors enjoy the walk from the International Convention Centre (the ICC) and the Symphony Hall to the Bull Ring Shopping Centre. This is a walk of roughly 20 minutes but allow much longer if you want to stop on the way. The Bullring Shopping Centre has recently been redeveloped and now offers shoppers a vast range of shops, including Selfridges, bars and restaurants to while away the hours. Other shopping destinations in the city include the Pavilions shopping centre, The Mailbox and the Pallasades which is located above Birmingham New Street railway station.
Birmingham also has a large canal network and the area immediately adjoining the canals in the city centre have been developed over recent years and now offer visitors an enhanced environment and high level of amenities. The canal paths make excellent walking routes.
