Nestling at the edge of the South Downs National Park is the city of Winchester in Hampshire. The cathedral city lies on the banks of the River Itchen and is a short distance along the south coast of England from Southampton. The city has many historic landmarks including Wolvesey Castle and the Great Hall of Winchester Castle. The former was the Norman's Bishop's palace and dates from 1110. Most of the original castle is now a ruin although the chapel is now incorporated into the new palace that was constructed in the 1680's. Only one wing of the second palace still remains. The Great Hall was built in the 12th century and rebuilt at some point in the 13th century. It remains in this form today. The Hall is famous for King Arthur's Round Table which has hung in the hall from around 1463. The names of the legendary Knights of the Round Table are written around the edge of the table.
Travelling to Winchester by rail is easy with many frequent direct services from London, Weymouth, Portsmouth and Southampton and from towns and cities around the United Kingdom.
The city of Gloucester is located in the county of Gloucestershire and lies close to the border with Wales. The city, which also lies on the River Severn, has a rich past dating back to Roman times. At the heart of the city, and standing in College Green, is the Norman cathedral with its breathtaking fan-vaulted cloisters and great east window. From the cathedral it is only a short walk down narrow cobbled streets, past historical buildings, to the main shopping area in the city. From there it is, once again, a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its now converted warehouses. In the docks you are likely to see all manner of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. The city is also an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area and take in the splendour of the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. The Cotswolds is an area of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The Forest of Dean is an area of mixed ancient woodland and forms a roughly triangular plateau bounded by the River Wye to the west and north, the River Severn to the south, and the City of Gloucester to the east.
