The historic university city of Oxford is located in the county of Oxfordshire and is roughly 35 miles to the east of Cheltenham and 30 miles to the south west of Milton Keynes. Although known for its university the economy of Oxford is also reliant on car making, publishing, science and technology, bellfounding and brewing. Several of the University's colleges had private breweries which includes Brasenose College whose brewery survived until 1889.
Oxford used to be an important port of the River Thames, although the section of the Thames that runs through Oxford is called The Isis. To accommodate commercial traffic the Oxford-Burcot Commission in the 17th century took steps to improve the navigability of the river. The Oxford Canal was constructed in the 18th century in order to connect Oxford with the Midlands. Commercial traffic has given way to recreational use of the river and canal. Oxford was the original base of Salters Steamers and there is a regular service from Folly Bridge downstream to Abingdon and beyond.
Interesting attractions in the city include the Ashmolean Museum, the Bodleian Library, Christ Church Cathedral, The Headington Shark, the Museum of History and Science and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
The city of Salisbury is located in the county of Wiltshire and is described as the City in the Countryside. The city is home to many timbered buildings, an early English Gothic Cathedral, home to copy of the Magna Carta, a bustling market, museums and some of England's finest houses. Located within the cathedral Close there is Arundells, Mompesson House, The Rifles Military Museum and the Salisbury Museum all of which provide many hours of fun for the family. On the edge of the city there is Salisbury Racecourse. In a beautiful setting the racecourse provides around 15 days of racing each year throughout the summer months. The racecourse attracts top jockeys and some of the best horses in the country. In 2012 Salisbury was awarded Purple Flag status which is awarded to towns or cities that offer a 'gold standard' for their centres at night. It is a standard that means they are welcoming to all and offer safe ways for people to travel home, provide a good mix of venues and have lower crime rates and lower levels of anti-social behaviour.
