The cathedral city of Lincoln is located in, and the county town of, Lincolnshire in England. The city lies in a gap in the Lincoln Cliff by the River Witham roughly 150 miles to the north of London. The city's origins date back to Roman times which developed from the Roman time of Lindum Colonia. Perhaps the city's most famous landmarks are its cathedral and its 11th century castle.
Following destruction of the first cathedral by an earthquake, construction on the current cathedral began in 1185 and when completed it was widely recognised as being the tallest man made structure in the world, surpassing the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Contained within the cathedral is one of only 4 surviving original copies of the Magna Carta which was drawn up in 1215.
Other visitor attractions in the city include the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and the Sir Joseph Banks Conservatory at the Lawn, which is adjacent to Lincoln Castle. If visitors require a more tranquil experience then the Whisby Nature Reserve and the Hartsholme Country Park, which includes the Swanholme Lakes Local Nature Reserve, are places to head to. A louder experience would be to head to RAF Scampton which is home to the Red Arrows jet aerobatic team.
Located in the Central Belt region of Scotland, the city of Edinburgh is Scotland's capital city, and has been recognised as such since the 15th century. Overlooked by its imposing castle, the symbol of the city, Edinburgh combines medieval relics, Georgian grandeur and a powerful layer of modern life with contemporary avant-garde. Medieval palaces rub shoulders with the best of modern architecture, Gothic churches with amazing museums and galleries. Scotland's throbbing night-life centre, Edinburgh, "the Athens of the North", is also a feast for the mind and the senses, playing host to great restaurants, shops and an unequaled programme of city festivals throughout the year. Hogmanay, the Scottish New Year, kicks off the festivities, which culminate in the high summer with the Tattoo, the International and the Fringe, amongst many others.
The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh were listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1995. In 2004, Edinburgh became the first member of the UNESCO Creative Cities initiative when it was designated a City of Literature.
Edinburgh's historic centre is bisected by Princes Street Gardens, a broad swathe of parkland in the heart of the city. To the south of the gardens is the castle, located on top of an extinct volcanic crag, and flanked by the medieval streets of the Old Town following the Royal Mile along the ridge to the east.
