The Gloucestershire city of Gloucester as a number of medieval and Tudor period gabled and half timbered houses which date back to Gloucester's early history. An example of a public house from this period, and the only remaining example in the city, is The New Inn in Northgate Street. The building was constructed in 1450 by John Twyning.
The city also hosts the annual Three Choirs Festival every third year. The festival dates back to the eighteenth century and is one of the oldest music festivals in the United Kingdom. Gloucester hosts the festival with the cities of Hereford and Worcester and is next to host the festival in 2016. Other festivals held in the city include the annual Gloucester International Rhythm and Blues Festival which takes place at the end of July. There is also the Gloucester International Cajun and Zydeco Festival and the Medieval Fayre which is held every summer.
The Guildhall is the city's main theatre and hosts a large number of events including live music, dance performances, a cinema, bar, and art gallery. The main museum in the City is the Gloucester City Museum & Art Gallery.
Located in the south east of England, London is divided into thirty two boroughs and is a vibrant, multicultural city. It is the largest city in the United Kingdom and also the largest city in the European Union and is regarded as an international capital of culture, music, education, fashion, politics, finance and trade.
The commercial capital was the City of London. This had a dense population and all the other pre-requisites of a medieval city: walls, a castle (The Tower of London), a cathedral (St Pauls), a semi-independent City government, a port and a bridge across which all trade was routed so Londoners could make money (London Bridge).
A few miles upstream was the government capital (Westminster). This had a church for crowning the monarch (Westminster Abbey) and palaces. As each palace was replaced by a larger one, the previous one was used for government, first the Palace of Westminster (better known as the Houses of Parliament), then Whitehall, then Buckingham Palace. The two were linked by a road called The "Strand", old English for riverbank.
The 'green lungs' of London are the many parks scattered throughout the city including Hyde Park, St James Park and Regent's Park. Most of the larger parks, such as Richmond Park, have their origins in royal estates and hunting grounds and are still owned by the Crown, despite their public access.
