Sunderland is a city in Tyne and Wear in the north east of England. It lies at the mouth of the River Wear which also runs through the city with the two sides of the city connected by the Queen Alexandra Bridge at Pallion and the Wearmouth Bridge just north of the city centre. Much of the city is located on a low range of hills running parallel to the coast.
Over the centuries the city grew as a port, trading coal and salt. The city also began shipbuilding in the 14th century and was once regarded as being the "Largest Shipbuilding Town in the World" and by the 19th century Sunderland had grown to absorb Bishopwearmouth and Monkwearmouth.
Following the decline in the city's shipbuilding, the shipyards along the Wear were redeveloped into a mixture of residential, commercial and leisure facilities which includes St. Peter's Campus of the University of Sunderland, the North Haven housing and marina development, the National Glass Centre, the Stadium of Light, home to Sunderland Football Club, and the Riverside Retail Park. Adjacent to the Stadium of Light is the Sunderland Aquatic Centre which contains the only Olympic size swimming pool between Leeds and Edinburgh.
Located in the north west of England, the city of Liverpool has the perfect blend of old and new. The city has a world famous music scene and is the birthplace of the Beatles and is also home to Liverpool Football Club. Whilst in the city pay a visit to Albert Dock where you will find the Tate Liverpool, the Merseyside maritime Museum and the award winning Beatles Story. For fans of the Beatles you can take a Liverpool Beatles tour and discover the Cavern Club, Mendips, 20 Forthlin Road to name just a few important locations with a strong association with the band. For a family day out take a trip to the World Museum Liverpool which has everything from dinosaurs and Egyptian mummies to creatures from the deep and live creepy crawlies to discover. If you want an outdoor family adventure then take in the 550 acre Knowsley Safari Park where you can get close to camels, monkeys, rhinos and lions. Last, but not least, is Liverpool's sporting heritage. The city is home to two of the Premier League's biggest football teams - Liverpool Football Club and Everton Football Club. The city is also home to the world famous Grand National steeplechase race which is held at Aintree racecourse.
