The city of Plymouth lies between the River Plym and the River Tamar in the south west of England. Both rivers flow into Plymouth Sound, a natural harbour. Plymouth Sound is protected from the sea by the Plymouth Breakwater, which has been in use since 1814. In the Sound is Drake's Island which is seen from Plymouth Hoe, a flat public area on top of limestone cliffs. The River Tamar forms the county boundary between Devon and Cornwall and its estuary upon which Devonport Dockyard sits.
Due to its position on the coast, Plymouth has historically had a maritime based economy particular in the defence sector. Devonport Dockyard is the United Kingdom's only naval base that refits nuclear submarines. Plymouth also has the largest grouping of maritime businesses in the south west of England. The city also has the Plymouth Gin Distillery which has been producing Plymouth Gin since 1793.
Built in 1815, Union Street was at the heart of Plymouth's historical culture. It became known as the servicemen's playground, as it was where sailors from the Royal Navy would seek entertainment of all kinds. During the 1930s, there were 30 pubs and it attracted such performers as Charlie Chaplin to the New Palace Theatre. It is now the late-night hub of Plymouth's entertainment strip.
Located in north east Scotland, the city of Dundee is over 800 years old and is the fourth largest city in Scotland. The city is undergoing a transformation with a £300 million master plan to regenerate Dundee Waterfront which is expected to last for a 30-year period between 2001 and 2031. The aims of the project will be to reconnect the city centre to the waterfront, to improve facilities for walking, cyclists and buses, to replacing the existing inner ring road with a pair of east/west tree lined boulevards, build a new civic square and a regenerated railway station and arrival space at the western edge. A new Victoria and Albert museum is also being built which is set to be completed by 2015.
Dundee is also a key retail destination for north east Scotland. The city centre offers a wide variety of retailers, department stores, independent and specialist stores. The Murraygate and High Street forms the main pedestrian area and is home to a number of national stores. Other retail areas in the city include Gallagher Retail Park, Kingsway East Retail Park and Kingsway West Retail Park.
