Description of Destination : england
 

London

Harwich

Since the middle ages, Harwich has been a bustling maritime centre and the town has featured prominently in England 's naval history. Harwich ships and seamen played a major part in the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, and, during the two world wars, Harwich served as an important naval base. The old quarter of this busy town still holds many reminders of its history, and buildings such as the Electric Palace Cinema: dating from 1911 and one of the oldest purpose-built cinemas in England, the Treadwhell Crane and the High and Low Lighthouses have been carefully preserved.

Southampton

For centuries Southampton has been a flourishing port. The Mayflower sailed from here to America in 1620, as did the Titanic at the start of its tragic voyage in 1912. The Maritime Museum has displays on both these ships, and others on the huge luxury liners that sailed form the port in the first half of the 20th century. At the head of Southampton's High Street stand the old city gate, Bargate, and walks can be taken around the city walls. Near the Westgate, the Tudor House Museum contains exhibits on Victorian and Edwardian life.

Edinburgh ( Leith )

With its striking medieval and Georgian districts, overlooked by the volcanic sill of Arthur's Seat to the south and Calton Hill to the north, Edinburgh is widely regarded as one of Europe 's most handsome capitals. The city is famous for the arts, a pre-eminence reflected in its hosting every August of England's largest arts extravaganza, the Edinburgh Festival. An astonishing range of artistic and historical attractions and a renowned nightlife attract visitors here from all over the world.

Glasgow ( Greenock )

Glasgow shows audacity in everything from the profile of its new buildings to the range of designer clothes shops and the wit of its people. Originally a small salmon-fishing village, Glasgow really rose to prominence during the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. By the 1970s, however, Glasgow was a city with a fading industrial history and little sense of direction. Since then much has changed. Recent years have seen the city transform with European City of Culture status in 1990, refurbished buildings and a reputation for a vibrant nightlife.
