Liverpool and Chester
The city was founded in the middle ages.
By the early 19th century, 40% of the world's trade passed through Liverpool's docks, and during some period along the 19th century the city was wealthier than London itself, this wealth left a rich architectural heritage.
Founded by the romans as Deva Victrix, the city of Chester lies on the River Dee.
It is one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain containing a large number of mediaeval buildings.
