The city of Edinburgh is located in Lothian on the southern shore of the Firth or Forth and is Scotland's capital city. It has been regarded as Scotland's capital since at least the 15th century but political power moved south to London after the Union of the Crowns in 1603 and the Union of Parliaments in 1707. Edinburgh has a rich history and as a consequence has many historic buildings including Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Place, the churches of St. Giles, Greyfriars and Canongate.
The historic centre of Edinburgh is divided in two by Princes Street Gardens. To the south the view is dominated by Edinburgh Castle which is built high on the castle rock, and the long sweep of the Old Town descending towards Holyrood Palace. To the north lie Princes Street and the New Town. Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The city is home to many national institutions including the National Museum of Scotland, the National Library of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery. In terms of trade and commerce Edinburgh has long been a centre of banking and insurance and is now the United Kingdom's second largest financial centre after London.
The city of Salisbury is located in the county of Wiltshire and is described as the City in the Countryside. The city is home to many timbered buildings, an early English Gothic Cathedral, home to copy of the Magna Carta, a bustling market, museums and some of England's finest houses. Located within the cathedral Close there is Arundells, Mompesson House, The Rifles Military Museum and the Salisbury Museum all of which provide many hours of fun for the family. On the edge of the city there is Salisbury Racecourse. In a beautiful setting the racecourse provides around 15 days of racing each year throughout the summer months. The racecourse attracts top jockeys and some of the best horses in the country. In 2012 Salisbury was awarded Purple Flag status which is awarded to towns or cities that offer a 'gold standard' for their centres at night. It is a standard that means they are welcoming to all and offer safe ways for people to travel home, provide a good mix of venues and have lower crime rates and lower levels of anti-social behaviour.
