The city of Bath, located in the Avon Valley, lies at the southern edge of the Cotswolds which are a range of limestone hills which have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hills that the city lies on and are surrounded by have a maximum altitude of just under 800 feet.
The geothermal springs that rise up through the ground in the city, fell as rain in the Mendip Hills. The water percolates through the limestone aquifers at a depth of around 10,000 feet. At it as this depth that geothermal energy heats the water to a temperature of between 64 and 96 degrees centigrade (147 - 205 degreed Fahrenheit). As the water is under pressure it rises to the surface along fissures and fractures in the limestone rock.
The city of Bath has five theatres: Bath Theatre Royal, Ustinov Studio, the egg, the Rondo Theatre and the Mission Theatre. Between them they attract internationally celebrated companies and directors along with an annual season by Sir Peter Hall. Bath Abbey, home to the Klais Organ and the largest concert venue in the city, stages about 20 concerts and 26 organ recitals each year. The art deco Forum, which was originally a cinema, is another concert venue in the city and has a capacity of 1,700.
The city of Carlisle is ideally located between Scotland and the Lake District, and both within easy reach. It is situated on the path of Hadrian's Wall, Carlisle is a vibrant, cultured city and with direct rail links to the West Coast Main Line and M6 motorway, the city is an attractive base for visitors. Carlisle Castle is a great medieval fortress that has watched over the city for nearly a thousand years. The Castle is also home to the Border Regiment Museum which relates the history of Cumbria’s County Infantry Regiment, the Border Regiment and the King’s Own Royal Border Regiment and local Militia. Bothergate, the original southern entrance to the City, was replaced in the 16th century, and then again in the 19th century, with two new towers known as the Citadel. This was designed by Thomas Telford and Sir Robert Smirke, who also designed the bridge over the River Eden, as assize courts and a prison. The West Tower is now open to the public. Carlisle Great Fair is held in late August each year. It was originally established in 1353, and now runs as a sort of mini ‘Edinburgh Festival’.
