Norwich is a city located in the East Anglia region of eastern England and is roughly 100 miles from London. The city likes to promote its architectural heritage through a collection of notable buildings called the "Norwich 12". The 12 buildings that make up the group are: Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, The Great Hospital, St Andrew's Hall and Blackfriars Hall, The Guildhall, Dragon Hall, The Assembly House, St James Mill, St John the Baptist RC Cathedral, Surrey House, City Hall and The Forum.
Strangers' Hall is one of the oldest buildings in Norwich, and is a merchant's house dating to the early 14th century. The many rooms are furnished and equipped in the styles of different eras, from the Early Tudor to the Late Victorian. Exhibits include costumes and textiles, domestic objects of all sorts, and collections of children's toys and games, and of children's books. The latter two collections are considered to be of national importance.
Important live music venues that lead to the city having a thriving music scene are the Norwich Arts Centre which is located on St. Benedict's Street, the King of Hearts in Fye Bridge Street, The Waterfront, The Queen Charlotte and venues at the University of East Anglia.
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.
