The West Sussex city of Chichester is home to the 11th century Chichester Cathedral which contains the shrine to Saint Richard of Chichester. Contained within the cathedral, in the south aisle, is a window in the floor which enables visitors to see the remains of a Roman mosaic pavement. The cathedral is unusual in the United Kingdom because it has a separate bell tower located a few meters from the main building. Philp Larkin, the renowned poet, took inspiration for the poem "An Arundel Tomb" from the medieval tomb of a knight and his wife which is inside the cathedral.
Most of the architecture of the Roman town within Chichester has been declared a conservation area that contains many Grade I listed buildings. The Butter Market in North Street was designed by John Nash, and was opened in 1808 as a food and produce market. In 1900, a second story was added to the building, originally housing an arts institute. The Corn Exchange in East Street was built in 1833, and was one of the first in the country. It is an imposing building, designed to show off its importance to trade. In 1883 it was also used for drama and entertainment.
Located at the western end of Scotland's Central Belt, the city of Glasgow is the third largest city in the United Kingdom, and Scotland's largest. The city has transformed itself from being the once mighty powerhouse of industrial Britain to a centre for commerce, tourism, and culture. Glasgow was the host city for the Commonwealth Games in 2014. Glasgow has become one of the most visited cities in the British Isles, and visitors will find a revitalised city centre, one of the best shopping destinations outside London, excellent parks and museums (most of which are free), and easy access to the Highlands and Islands.
For the visitor, central Glasgow can be divided into two main areas, the City Centre, which contains the majority of tourist sights and much of the city's shopping and entertainment, as well as its commercial heart, and the West End, the bohemian area of cafés, restaurants and bars surrounding the University of Glasgow and Kelvingrove Museum. The best way to get good views of the city is to climb the many "drumlins" (hills) upon which the central area is built.
Glasgow has two main line railway stations. Trains from the south of Scotland, the city's southern suburbs and all long distance trains from England arrive at Glasgow Central Station, while shuttle trains from Edinburgh and anywhere north of Glasgow arrive at Glasgow Queen Street Station.
