Nestling at the edge of the South Downs National Park is the city of Winchester in Hampshire. The cathedral city lies on the banks of the River Itchen and is a short distance along the south coast of England from Southampton. The city has many historic landmarks including Wolvesey Castle and the Great Hall of Winchester Castle. The former was the Norman's Bishop's palace and dates from 1110. Most of the original castle is now a ruin although the chapel is now incorporated into the new palace that was constructed in the 1680's. Only one wing of the second palace still remains. The Great Hall was built in the 12th century and rebuilt at some point in the 13th century. It remains in this form today. The Hall is famous for King Arthur's Round Table which has hung in the hall from around 1463. The names of the legendary Knights of the Round Table are written around the edge of the table.
Travelling to Winchester by rail is easy with many frequent direct services from London, Weymouth, Portsmouth and Southampton and from towns and cities around the United Kingdom.
The city of Birmingham, located in the West Midlands region of England, was known in Victorian times as the "City of a 1,000 trades" and the "Workshop of the World" which is recognition of the city's traditional industrial path.
The city centre is partially pedestrianised and most of the city's attractions can be reached on foot. Many visitors enjoy the walk from the International Convention Centre (the ICC) and the Symphony Hall to the Bull Ring Shopping Centre. This is a walk of roughly 20 minutes but allow much longer if you want to stop on the way. The Bullring Shopping Centre has recently been redeveloped and now offers shoppers a vast range of shops, including Selfridges, bars and restaurants to while away the hours. Other shopping destinations in the city include the Pavilions shopping centre, The Mailbox and the Pallasades which is located above Birmingham New Street railway station.
Birmingham also has a large canal network and the area immediately adjoining the canals in the city centre have been developed over recent years and now offer visitors an enhanced environment and high level of amenities. The canal paths make excellent walking routes.
