Culturally, Nottingham is spoilt for choice. In addition to its vast range of bars, restaurants and night clubs the city has two large theatres, many museums and art galleries, an independent cinema and several live music venues including the Nottingham Arena and Rock City.
Nottingham has many different architectural styles with buildings dating back to the 12th century. The centre of Nottingham is usually regarded as the Old Market Square which is the largest city square in the UK. The square is overlooked by the Council House which was built in the 1920's and has baroque columns and stone statues of two lions at the front to stand guard over the square. On the ground floor of the Council House, Exchange Arcade is an upmarket shopping centre which has a number of high end boutiques.
Located in north west England, close to the border with Scotland, Carlisle is an historic city centred on its castle, museum and cathedral. In 1823 a canal was built to Fisher's Cross (Port Carlisle) to transport goods produced in the city. This enabled other industrial centres such as Liverpool to link with Carlisle via the Solway. However, this did not last and when the canal operators ran into financial difficulty the waterway was filled in and replaced by railways. Carlisle became a major railway centre on the West Coast Main Line with connections to the east. At one time seven companies used Carlisle Citadel railway station. Before the building of the Citadel Station the city had several other railway stations, including London Road station.
For those who appreciate good food, every August the Carlisle Food Fair is held in the pedestrianised area of the city centre. It plays host to produce from across the continent and features local produce including Cumberland sausage, Cumberland sauce and Cumberland Mustard. Carlisle is roughly 25 miles to the north of the northern edge of the Lake District, which is home to some of Britain's best restaurants.
