The city of Wakefield is located in West Yorkshire and lies by the River Calder on the eastern edge of the Pennines. The city is roughly 9 miles to the south east of Leeds and 30 miles to the south west of York. The centre of the city is on a hill on the north bank of the River Calder close to where a 14th century stone bridge crosses the river. The city was called the "Merrie City" in the middle ages and during the 18th century it developed as a result in its trade in corn, coal mining and textiles.
Major landmarks in the city include its cathedral which is 75m tall and is the tallest spire in Yorkshire, the Grade II listed Neoclassical Crown Court constructed in 1810 and Wakefield Town Hall constructed in 1880. Another prominent structure is the 95-arch railway viaduct, constructed of 800,000,000 bricks in the 1860s on the Doncaster to Leeds railway line. At its northern end is a bridge with an 80-foot span over Westgate and at its southern end a 163-foot iron bridge crossing the River Calder. Also, the old Wakefield Bridge with its Chantry Chapel, Sandal Castle, and Lawe Hill in Clarence Park are ancient monuments.[
Located in the West Midlands region of England, the city of Wolverhampton isn't well known as a tourist attraction, those visiting friends at the University, enjoying a football match at the famous Molineux Stadium or attending a concert at one of the fine local music venues will probably be pleasantly surprised by what this city has to offer.
Bus services originate from the city's bus station, which is located close to the railway station. There are regular services to all parts of the city, although it should be noted that many services stop at around 11pm. Buses from Wolverhampton also travel to the towns of the Black Country (including Dudley, Sandwell, West Bromwich and Walsall) and to Birmingham, although the journey by road can be quite long.
A more recent addition to Wolverhampton's public transport system is the Midland Metro. Regular and frequent trams start at Wolverhampton St George's stop in Bilston Street (very close to the city's main shopping area on Dudley Street) and pass via Bilston, Wednesbury, West Bromwich and Sandwell, and terminate at Birmingham Snow Hill railway station, a few minutes walk from Birmingham New Street railway station.
