A.     City Mayor’s table of top UK cities is made up of the country’s 200 largest cities, towns and districts. Not all areas listed in the table are urban in nature. For example, South Gloucestershire, north of Bristol, is predominantly rural, while Bath and North East Somerset comprises the spa city of Bath and the mainly rural area of North East Somerset. In Scotland, the Scottish Borders comprises the markets towns of Peeble and Galashiels as well as large areas of rural and uncultivated hill areas.

B.     With a population of more than seven million people, London, the UK’s capital, has no equal among its UK peers. Britain’s only other city with a population of more than one million is the West Midland city of Birmingham. With Leeds, Glasgow and Sheffield, there are only three more British cities with a population of more than 500,000.

C.     Scotland’s capital and the seat of its Parliament, Edinburgh combines the young and modern sensibilities of a great university city and national capital with a historic and dramatic setting. Edinburgh has about half a million people, including more than 62,000 university students. At least 13 million people visit it every year. During the main festival month of August, the population of Edinburgh swells by more than one million, making it, temporarily, the UK’s second largest city.

D.     Manchester is often called the first modern city. In the 18th century this Northwestern city, 30 miles from Liverpool, was the cotton making capital of the world and one of the breeding grounds of the industrial revolution. Now it is also full of museums, galleries, theatres and libraries as well as outstanding civic architecture. Today, some of the most exciting architecture in Britain can be found in Manchester and the nearby Salford Quays area.

E.      A combination of industrial courage and engineering know-how made Birmingham the manufacturing engine of Britain through the 19th century and most of the 20th. James Watt first commercially manufactured his steam engine here; the transatlantic cable and the Orient Express were Birmingham built, and this was the heartland of the British motor industry.

F.      Scotland’s largest city and the third largest city in the UK, Glasgow’s had long taken a back seat to Edinburgh with tourists and visitors. Its reputation as a rough, crime-ridden, dirty and hard drinking city put people off. But, since the mid 1980s, Glaswegians have worked hard to turn that image around. And they’ve succeeded. In 1995, Glasgow was European Capital of Culture. The award wasn’t for the heritage culture that enlivens Edinburgh but for an entirely more contemporary vibe. And it keeps getting better.

G.     When visitors think of Liverpool, the Beatles come immediately to mind. And, of course, there’s plenty to do that’s Beatles related. In 2008, the mantle of European Capital of Culture landed on Liverpool, revitalizing this city in England’s northwest, as the award often does. Liverpool’s Albert Docks area became a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its role in the maritime history of Britain’s. Visitors to the area can explore Liverpool’s part in the history, in emigration to the New World and in the spread of trade and culture across the British Empire

Red Bull Soapbox Race in London


Just like the weather, the competition was heating up at The Red Bull Soapbox Race at London’s Alexandra Palace over the weekend. Around 70 amateur competitors took part in the crazy race which involved driving around the track in a homemade, motorless soapbox, relying on courage, gravity and possibly some Red Bull to get them across the finishing line.

There was a colourful and imaginatively-designed array of vehicles, from soapboxes shaped like Mexican wraps to one inspired by Olympic athlete Usain Bolt.

The winners of this year’s race were the Phya-Bird team from Newcastle, with Coffin Dodgers and ‘Does My Scrum Look Big In This?’ coming second and third respectively.

The victor of the race is not solely determined by the first vehicle to cross the finish line but also the creativity of the design. Teams were made up of four members, who were required to design and build the vehicle which can be any shape and made of any material that fits in with the guidelines.

The competition is held all over the world and past races have taken place in South Africa, Australia and Sweden. The event has been taking place since 2000 and there have been over 40 soapbox races, this year’s competition returned to London after a nine-year gap.

Hello Kat,

It’s nice to get another letter from you. I hope everything is OK. I wonder why you are worried about such global problems as pollution. I guess you are right to think that it is the major problem of today. If we cope at least with this one our world will be much better and cleaner.

As for the laptop you are going to buy I don’t really know which one is better for you as everyone has his own preferences. I find macbook as one of the best makes of all the laptops possible. But it’s up to you to decide which one to choose. Of course, a lot depends on the sum you are going to spend.

Best wishes,

Hi Kevin,

It’s nice to receive a letter from you so soon. As for keeping fit I agree it’s difficult enough to have regular exercise as it takes time and effort. You should have some definite goal to keep yourself working every day. It’s easier to talk about it but hard to do. Sometimes friends that go in for sports together with you can really help.

Reading about your new plans I think it good to have a part-time job to have pocket money all the time. You’d better start in summer, find some job in a café as it seems the easiest to start with.
