Newport, in Gwent, is a cathedral city in south east Wales. The city lies on the River Usk close to its confluence with the Severn estuary and is roughly 10 miles to the east of Cardiff, Wales' capital city. Newport has been a port since medieval times when its castle was built by the Normans. The city grew rapidly when the port began to play an important role in exports of coal that had been mined in the eastern valleys of South Wales. Newport remained the largest coal exporting port until Cardiff took over in the 1850's.
Newport's main shopping area is the pedestrianised streets of the city centre which include the High Street, Newport Arcade, Market Arcade, Commercial Street, Skinner Street, Bridge Street, Upper Dock Street, Market Street and John Frost Square. There is also the Kingsway Shopping Centre which is an indoor shopping mall.
Newport Transporter Bridge is one of the few remaining working bridges of its type in the world and featured in the film Tiger Bay. Visitors can travel on the suspended cradle most days and can walk over the top of the steel framework on bank holidays. The only other British example is Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge. Open days are occasionally held to view the renovation of the historically important Newport Ship.
Located in the county of Wiltshire in the south of England, the city of Salisbury is the only city in Wiltshire and has at its centre a 13th century cathedral. Old Serum is the site of the original city and is located on a hilltop just to the north of the present day city. The site shows evidence of habitation from around 3,000 BC to 1219 when the bishop relocated the cathedral to its present location. Most of the site is free to enter although there is a charge for the Inner Bailey.
Music plays an important part in the city's history especially during the 18th century when James Harris, a friend of George Frideric Handel, directed concerts at the Assembly Rooms for almost fifty years until his death in 1780. Art also has an important role in Salisbury's history. John Constable made a number of landscape paintings featuring the cathedral's spire and surrounding countryside. The city retains a strong artistic community. The city holds an annual arts festival, the International Arts Festival, which began in 1973 and is held in late May to early June. The festival contains a programme of live music, dance, sculpture and art exhibitions.
