Winchester is a city and county town of Hampshire in southern England. The city lies at the western end of the South Downs National Park, along the course of the River Itchen. It is roughly 70 miles to the south west of London and 14 miles from Southampton. The city can trace its origins back to Roman times and a town called Venta Belgarum.
The city's major landmark is Winchester Cathedral which was built in 1079 and is one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. The cathedral has the longest nave and overall length of all Gothic cathedrals in Europe. In addition to its cathedral, Winchester is also home to the University of Winchester and to Winchester College, the oldest public school in the United Kingdom which was founded in 1382.
Other important historic buildings include the Guildhall dating from 1871 in the Gothic revival style, the Royal Hampshire County Hospital designed by William Butterfield and Winchester City Mill, one of the city's several water mills driven by the River Itchen that run through the city centre. The mill has recently been restored, and is again milling corn by water power. It is owned by the National Trust.
Located in the county of Norfolk, the city of Norwich and is roughly 115 miles to the north east of London. The city is a convenient base for exploring the Norfolk Broads, the North Norfolk Coast, along with the whole county of Norfolk. Norwich is a fairly small city and can easily be explored on foot. However, if you choose to use a bus most services are operated by FirstGroup and are useful for getting to the railway station and the riverside entertainment district, the university and the airport.
The River Yare is navigable from the sea at Great Yarmouth all the way to Trowse, south of the city. From there the River Wensum is navigable into Norwich up to New Mills, and is crossed by the Novi Sad Friendship Bridge. Scheduled trips through the city and out to The Broads are available from outside Norwich railway station and also Elm Hill. Recently Norwich City Council gave the go-ahead to introduce punting on the River Wensum.
The City of Norwich Aviation Museum is located at Horsham St. Faith, close to Norwich Airport. There are static displays of both military and civil aircraft, together with various collections of exhibits, including one concerned with the United States 8th Army Air Force.
