About Stoke On Trent
The Staffordshire city of Stoke-on-Trent (or just Stoke) lies to the north of Birmingham and a short distance to the west of the Peak District National Park. Stoke's main theatre is the Regent Theatre which is in Hanley, a suburb of Stoke, and is complimented by the Victoria Hall, the New Vic Theatre, the Victorian Kings Hall and the Queens Theatre.
Stoke is often referred to as The Potteries due to its association with pottery which began in the 17th century. The city has claimed the title of World Capital of Ceramics. The city has many attractions including museums, factory tours, and over 25 pottery factory shops. The nearby Trentham Estate has Italian Gardens, a shopping village, Monkey Forest and a lake which is one mile long.
The site of an old colliery and other reclaimed land is being planted as the Central Forest Park. Stoke was the site of the first National Garden Festival in 1985; the site was subsequently developed into the Festival Park, a business area where some 3,000 jobs have been created.
Lying on the West Coast Main Line, stoke has excellent rail links both locally and nationally with journey times to London of around one hour and thirty minutes.
Located at the western end of Scotland's Central Belt, the city of Glasgow is the third largest city in the United Kingdom, and Scotland's largest. The city has transformed itself from being the once mighty powerhouse of industrial Britain to a centre for commerce, tourism, and culture. Glasgow was the host city for the Commonwealth Games in 2014. Glasgow has become one of the most visited cities in the British Isles, and visitors will find a revitalised city centre, one of the best shopping destinations outside London, excellent parks and museums (most of which are free), and easy access to the Highlands and Islands.
For the visitor, central Glasgow can be divided into two main areas, the City Centre, which contains the majority of tourist sights and much of the city's shopping and entertainment, as well as its commercial heart, and the West End, the bohemian area of cafés, restaurants and bars surrounding the University of Glasgow and Kelvingrove Museum. The best way to get good views of the city is to climb the many "drumlins" (hills) upon which the central area is built.
Glasgow has two main line railway stations. Trains from the south of Scotland, the city's southern suburbs and all long distance trains from England arrive at Glasgow Central Station, while shuttle trains from Edinburgh and anywhere north of Glasgow arrive at Glasgow Queen Street Station.
