As a result of a conflict between Scotland and England between 1543 and 1550, known as the Rough Wooing, there is little remaining of Dundee's medieval city. However, one example of a structure that does survive from this era is the Wishart Arch (or East Port) in Cowgate. Dating back to 1544 it is the last surviving section of the city walls. Another example of medieval architecture that survives is Gardyne's Land on the High Street which dates back to around 1560.
Dundee lies in the central eastern Lowlands of Scotland on the north bank of the Firth of Tay which eventually flows into the North Sea. Dundee is Scotland's fourth largest city and is famous for building the RRS Discovery which was captain Scott's Atlantic exploration ship. The RRS Discovery can now be found berthed in Dundee's harbour.
The city has a thriving student population and is home to two universities: the University of Dundee and the University of Abertay Dundee which was founded as the Dundee Institute of Technology in 1988. The university is noted for its computing and creative technology courses, particularly in computer games technology, and is where the makers of Grand Theft Auto started out.
Located in the county of Oxfordshire, the city of Oxford has a rich history and is famous for being home of the prestigious Oxford University, which is made up of 38 colleges. However, there is more to Oxford than the university. You can take a stroll around the city and discover lovely tea rooms and cafes, museums, many of which are free to enter, or explore the famous Botanic Gardens. The Gardens were founded by the Earl of Danby, Henry Danvers as a physic garden in 1621, and is the oldest botanic garden in Britain. It houses a good collection of trees and plants, has tropical greenhouses, a Bog Garden and a Rock Garden. To get an overview of the city before you begin walking, try climbing up Carfax Tower in the city centre. Other views over the city are available from the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin in the High Street, and St. Michael Northgate, in Cornmarket. All of these vantage points have small admission charges. Walking tours of the city centre depart from the Oxford Visitor Information Centre (unless otherwise stated) and last between 1.5 and 2 hours. As well as introductory guided walking tours, specially themed tours are also available.
