Leicester is a city in the East Midlands of England and county town of Leicestershire which lies on the River Soar. The city also lies at the edge of the National Forest which is an environmental project run by the national Forest Company. It is an attempt to blend ancient woodland with new plantings in order to create a new national forest. Leicester has a number of scheduled monuments which include the 15th century Belgrave Bridge, the 12th century Leicester Abbey and medieval Leicester Castle.
The city has two main shopping centres which are the Haymarket Shopping Centre and Highcross Leicester. In additional there is the smaller St Martin's Square shopping centre and Leicester Lanes where there are a number of designer and specialist shops. Leicester has a large multi cultural population and the Golden Mile is a stretch of Belgrave Road known for its authentic Indian restaurants, sari shops and jewellers.
Leicester also hosts many cultural events including the annual Pride Parade, a Caribbean Carnival which is the largest in the UK outside London, the largest Diwali celebration outside of India and one of the largest comedy festivals in the UK, the Leicester Comedy Festival. The city also has a film festival, the Leicester International Short Film Festival, which is an annual event which is held every November.
Located on Scotland's north east coast, the city of Aberdeen is a harbour city located roughly 120 miles north of Edinburgh and 400 miles north of London. The city does not attract as many tourists as other Scottish cities and as a result can feel more authentic. It is a good base from which to explore the surrounding region and take in the castles, golf courses, whisky distilleries and mountains.
Walking is an excellent way to get around Aberdeen, particularly around central areas, as the city centre is relatively compact. Walking is also by far the best way to appreciate the grand architecture of the city. However, the city is not that small (e.g. Union Street is one mile long) so for journeys outside of the city centre it may be better to use public transport.
The Aberdeen Art Gallery is located in a Victorian building that has an exquisite marble and granite main hall. Admission is free and the gallery contains modern works including pieces by Tracy Emin and Gilbert & George and more traditional paintings and sculptures including works by the Scottish Colourists.
