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 in the north west of England, the city of Manchester lies within the Greater Manchester built-up area, and is the United Kingdom's second most populous urban area. The city has a buoyant cultural scene which is expressed in its theatre, opera and dance performances which perform at some of the city's largest performance venues including the Manchester Opera House, the palace Theatre and the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester's former cotton exchange. The Manchester Opera House also hosts many touring shows and West End productions. Manchester also has a number of more intimate performance spaces including the Library Theatre, which is located in the basement of the Central Library in the city centre, the Contact Theatre and Studio Salford. The 'Madchester' scene of the 1980s, from which groups including The Stone Roses, the Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets, 808 State, James and The Charlatans emerged, was based on clubs such as the famous Haçienda.
