The historic city of Canterbury is located in south east England in the county of Kent and lies on the River Stour. The city's cathedral, which lies at the heart of the city, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Canterbury Cathedral was founded in 597 AD by Augustine and is the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion and the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Anglican Church. Many historical structures remain, including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and a Norman castle, and perhaps the oldest school in England, The King's School.
The city's theatre and concert hall is the Marlowe Theatre which was named after Christopher Marlowe, who was born in the city in Elizabethan times. The old Marlowe Theatre was located in St Margaret's Street and housed a repertory theatre. The Gulbenkian Theatre, at the University of Kent, also serves the city, housing also a cinema and café. The Marlowe Theatre has now been completely rebuilt, fully opening in October 2011. Besides the two theatres, theatrical performances also take place at several areas of the city, for instance the Cathedral and St Augustine's Abbey. The premiere of Murder in the Cathedral by T. S. Eliot took place at Canterbury Cathedral.
The city is served by two main line railway stations: Canterbury West and Canterbury East.
Located in the county of Herefordshire, the city of Hereford is close to the border with Wales and lies on the River Wye. H.Art, or Herefordshire Art Week, is an annual county-wide exhibition held in September, displaying the work of local artists. Many places usually closed to the public are opened during this week, such as the Bishop's Palace at the Cathedral. Another attraction in the city is the Hereford Cider Museum which includes a shop and an interactive guide on how to make cider. The museum was established by people who wanted to record the traditional art of cider making. The museum is housed in a former cider factory and was opened in the early 1980's. Since the mid 1980's, friends of the museum hold an annual International Cider Festival.
RAF Hereford was a non-flying station of the Royal Air Force located near to the city. It was the home of a wide variety of training schools from 1940 until it closed for RAF training in 1999. Subsequently the Special Air Service (SAS) moved their base to there from its previous location in the city. There is a clocktower in Hereford where the names of dead SAS men are inscribed.
