Lichfield Cathedral. in the Staffordshire city of Lichfield, is dedicated to St Chad and Saint Mary and is located in the Staffordshire city of Lichfield. The cathedral has an internal length of 113 meters and is 21 meters wide. The cathedral's central spire is 77 meters high and its western spires are both around 58 meters high. The cathedral was constructed out of local sandstone which was quarried for a site to the south of the city. Interestingly, the walls of the nave lean slightly outwards due to the weight of the stone used in the vaulted ceiling. The stained glass window of the Lady Chapel contains some of the finest medieval Flemish painted glass, having originally come from the Abbey of Herkenrode in Belgium in 1801. Modern day Lichfield has retained its status as an ecclesiastical centre and the city has managed retained over 200 listed buildings.
In the 18th century Lichfield became a busy coaching centre where Inns and hostelries grew in order to provide accommodation. Industries dependent on the coaching trade such as coach builders, corn and hay merchants, saddlers and tanneries also began to thrive. The main source of wealth to the city came from the money generated by its many visitors. However, the invention of the railways saw a decline in coach travel, and with it came the decline in Lichfield's prosperity.
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.
