Chichester is a city located in West Sussex in the south east of England and is the only city in West Sussex. The city lies on the River Lavant just to the south of its gap through the South Downs. Its origins began with its Roman settlement and subsequent importance in Anglo-Saxon times and is home to some of the oldest churches and building in the United Kingdom. Chichester has medieval city walls surrounding it which have been built on Roman foundations.
Chichester Cathedral, founded in the 11th century, is dedicated to the Holy Trinity, and contains a shrine to Saint Richard of Chichester. Its spire was built of the weak local stone and collapsed suddenly and was rebuilt during the 19th century.
The architecture of the Roman town within Chichester has been declared a conservation area which includes many Grade I listed buildings. There is another conservation area to the north around the former Graylingwell Hospital and another to the south to include the newly restored canal basin and part of the canal itself.
The city has taken maximum advantage of its past and has used it to develop a large tourist industry. There are also several marinas located nearby which support local related industries. The city's proximity to Chichester Harbour and the South Downs provide excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
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’.
