This small city has all the charm you could want and is only 45 minutes from London by train. Could be considered as "home base" if you're visiting during the Olympics and can't afford London's prices.
There's lots of history here and much of it is still in tact! From the Romans to the amazing new museum of modern art. (The building is a work of art itself!) Be sure to check in with the Tourist Info. Center (just opposite the Castle Museum). These people are so nice and really know what they're doing. I took a great walk around the city using one of their publications -- learned so much; saw everything.
