    Manchester Favorites

    Manchester is the home of Granada Studios which produces Coronation Street, a long running British soap. It first aired on Dec. 9, 1960 and is still going strong.

    York Favorites

    The longest street name in York, and the shortest street. 35 meters long. One web site I looked at explained that the name derives from what was originally a longer expression that had the meaning of "neither one thing nor the other." Oh. It's essentially an intersection - where Fossgate becomes Colliergate, and St. Saviourgate and The Stonebow...

    Walk up New Street to Victoria Square. At the end of New Street facing you is the Town Hall. In 1830 there was a competition for a new town hall in Birmingham with less than two months allowed for the preparation of designs. The design chosen was that of Joseph Hansom and E Welsh, based on the Temple of Castor and Pollux. Construction began in...

    Chester Favorites

    Just the other side of the wall from the Roman garden is this lovely row of tiny timber and sandstone cottages built as almshouses in about 1650. And no you haven't miscounted - only six of the original nine survive! Take a little detour from your walk around the walls to see them.

    The architect Giles Gilbert Scott (1880-1960) won the architectural competion to design the cathedral when he was just 22! Work on its construction began when Liverpool was truly the second city of the Empire, before the outbreak of World War I. That war, the economic problems of the 1920s and 30s, and World War II all slowed down construction....

    The Beatles are from Liverpool. Everybody knows that. I really like how the whole city still wasn't turned into a Beatles trap!

It's really easy to...

    The Eastgate Clock is the second most photographed clock in the UK! At least that's what I've been told. The most photographed clock of course is Big Ben. Chester is famous for it's clock, yet it was only built in 1897 and so in Chester terms it's quite a recent momument! At the end of the last century, there was much discussion as to the best...

    The Rows are probably the most often photographed sight in Chester, a series of half-timbered buildings joined with long galleries, looking like a Tudor shopping mall -most are in fact Victorian!

    The "Roman Garden" monicker is something of a misnomer. Certainly there is no indication that a garden existed on this site near Newgate during Roman times. The garden space was, in fact, assembled in 1949 from bits and pieces of Roman artifacts found throughout Chester. The project was initiated as Chester's contribution to the 1951 Festival of...
