York is an historic walled city located in North Yorkshire. The city lies at the confluence of the River Ouse and River Foss and is in the Vale of York, a flat area of fertile land bordered by the Pennines, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds. York is dominated by its cathedral, York Minster, which is the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. The present building was begun in about 1230 and completed in 1472. In addition to York Minster the city has many historic attractions, cultural and sporting events, which makes it a very popular visitor destination.
In the 19th century the city became a hub of the national railway network in the United Kingdom and a centre for the manufacture of confectionary, although modern York's economy is largely based on the service sector and tourism.
The Theatre Royal, which was established in 1744, produces an annual pantomime which attracts loyal audiences from around the country to see its veteran star, Berwick Kaler. The Grand Opera House and Joseph Rowntree Theatre also offer a variety of productions. The city is also home to the Riding Lights Theatre Company, which as well as operating a busy national touring department, also operates a busy youth theatre and educational departments.
Cambridge is located about 50 miles to the north east of London and lies in an area of level and relatively low lying terrain to the south of the Fens, which is a naturally marshy area in Eastern England which are between 6 and 24 meters above sea level.

The city takes its name from the River Cam.
