The city of Wakefield is located in West Yorkshire and lies by the River Calder on the eastern edge of the Pennines. The city is roughly 9 miles to the south east of Leeds and 30 miles to the south west of York. The centre of the city is on a hill on the north bank of the River Calder close to where a 14th century stone bridge crosses the river. The city was called the "Merrie City" in the middle ages and during the 18th century it developed as a result in its trade in corn, coal mining and textiles.
Major landmarks in the city include its cathedral which is 75m tall and is the tallest spire in Yorkshire, the Grade II listed Neoclassical Crown Court constructed in 1810 and Wakefield Town Hall constructed in 1880. Another prominent structure is the 95-arch railway viaduct, constructed of 800,000,000 bricks in the 1860s on the Doncaster to Leeds railway line. At its northern end is a bridge with an 80-foot span over Westgate and at its southern end a 163-foot iron bridge crossing the River Calder. Also, the old Wakefield Bridge with its Chantry Chapel, Sandal Castle, and Lawe Hill in Clarence Park are ancient monuments.[
Located in north east Scotland, The Granite City, as Aberdeen is sometimes known as, is a hustling and bustling city but is also known for its wide range of parks, gardens and outdoor activities for those who crave city life coupled with the great outdoors. The city has a great beach, ideal for surfing and kit boarding as well as wildlife watching at Torry Battery. There is also BMX cycling facilities and a rock climbing wall. Duthie Park is Aberdeen's most famous park. Within the park are the David Welch Winter Gardens, which house many exotic plants including the largest collection of cacti in Britain. The park is an ideal setting for the perfect day out with the family, with activities from boating in the ponds to cricket on the lawns. Aberdeenshire has many Nature Reserves and one of the most popular is Glen Tanar Natural Nature Reserve located in a beautiful glen at the heart of Royal Deeside. At the reserve you might be lucky enough to glimpse a red squirrel or a Scottish crossbill might be above your head as you wander through ancient trees. You might also see the silvery flash of a salmon powering upstream from the banks of the river.
