The Cornish cathedral city of Truro is located in the south west of the United Kingdom. As the largest town in the county it is Cornwall's centre for retail and also the county's administrative centre. The piazza at Lemon Quay is the where most festivities in the city take place. There are many events throughout the year that attract many visitors to the city. In April, the city prepares for the annual Britain in Bloom competition. The city also hosts a 'continental market' during the same time and features food from across Europe.
Truro also hosts an annual carnival which is held every September and includes music performances, children's activities, a fireworks display, food and drink fairs, a circus and a street parade. The city also hosts an annual half marathon every September which starts in the city centre and then heads out into the nearby countryside and then finishes at Lemon Quay.
Christmas in Truro is not to be missed. The annual Winter Festival includes a paper lantern parade known as the City of Lights Parade. A Christmas tree is erected in the Piazza and another outside the Cathedral at High Cross.
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.
