GIVE A COMPARATIVE DESCRIPTION OF SOME ANCIENT ENGLISH TOWNS.

To start with I should say that Britain is a fabulous country, a country of startling beauty and diversity, it’s really worth exploring, visiting and living in. It’s packed with exiting places to go and interesting place to discover. Everyone who comes to England is fascinated by its magnificent, picturesque, breathtaking and inviting towns where past and present exist side by side. Some of the ancient towns in England are Salisbury, Caernarfon, Durham and Liverpool.

Salisbury was one of earliest new-towns. It was founded in 1220. the most striking features is the cathedral which was founded at the same time as the town. It is thought to be one of the most beautiful in Europe, the cathedral is 473 feet long. Salisbury is a market town and a shopping centre, for the large number of military bases. It’s also a tourist center, because of the cathedral, old town and Stonehenge, which is 10 miles in north-west of the city.

Caernarton has always been an important strategic and military site. The Romans built a castle here in 78 AD. The castle is one of the finest surviving castle in Britain. The town is a market center and a tourist center for the Snowdonia National Park. It’s also famous for sailing and fishing.

Durham is built on a bend in the river Wear and it grew around the Norman castle which was built in 1072 to protect England from the Scots. The religious school developed from 15th century, eventually becoming the University of Durham. It’s England’s third oldest University, after Oxford and Cambridge. D is administration and market center.

Liverpool is one of the Br’s largest cities. It’s most famous inhabitants are probably: John Lennon, Paul MacCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star, there is a museum of THE BEATLES. L developed quickly in the 18th and 19th centuries, as Br’s major Atlantic port. It was also a center for a cotton trade and manufacturing industry. There are 2 20th century cathedrals here: one church of England and the other Roman Catholic. L is a cosmopolitan city. Today is well-know for the wit and humour of its people and its high unemployment figures.

As you can see, every ancient town in England has something to offer a visitor and has attractions of its own.
