I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Newry, one of Northern Ireland’s oldest towns.

Newry lies in the most south-eastern part of Northern Ireland, in the north-south corridor between Belfast and Dublin. As such it has developed into one of the most popular shopping towns in Ireland. Cross border trade has increased, which has meant both the Quays and the Buttercrane enjoying high footfall in their stores.

Newry’s recent past has seen it being conferred with city status in 2002. One of two cities in Northern Ireland bestowed with this honour by the Queen, the other being Lisburn.

Newry history shows that it was founded in 1144 alongside a Cistercian Monastery. It was destroyed by fire in 1689 by the forces of King James II during the Williamite war. The city was rebuilt afterwards and became a busy trading town. By 1742 its port became the busiest in Ulster and as result its canal opened making it the first major canal in Britain, it ran for 18 miles to Lough Neagh.

Newry is also the home of Ireland’s highest viaduct, Craighmore Viaduct which lies to the North of the city and consists of 18 arches; it was designed by Sir John O Neill and opened in 1852.

The city has strong links to St Patrick, the English interpretation of the name comes from the Irish (Lur Chinn Tra) which means the yew at the head of the strand, which St Patrick is said to have planted in the 5th Century.

Ireland’s first protestant church is also in the city and bears St Patrick’s name. It first opened its doors in 1578. Newry’s other main Cathedral is St Patrick’s and St Colman’s which was built in 1829, it was designed by architect Thomas Duff.

Newry offers some of the finest scenery in Northern Ireland, with the Ring of Gullion to the south-west and the Mourne Mountains to the east. Both have been designated as areas of outstanding natural beauty. The river Clanrye runs through the city and historically formed the border between Armagh and Down. The city’s Town Hall was built on top of the river.

Newry can boast some famous sons with Pat Jennings, former goalkeeper and Northern Ireland’s most capped player born in the city. Mountaineer Terence “Banjo” Bannon is from the city, as is John Dunlop, prominent Presbyterian churchman. John Mitchell, the driving force behind the Young Ireland Movement is buried in the Old Meeting House in the city.

Newry has a population which has grown steadily and in a census carried out in 2001 its population numbered 27433 people. Newry house prices have also increased dramatically by 371% since 1996, topping a poll for the whole of the United Kingdom.

Sport plays a major part in the fabric of the city with Pairc Esler being the home of Down GAA. The city also boasts a soccer club which play at the Showgrounds in the city. There are a wide range of activities available in the city, with a museum, arts centre and a number of art galleries available.

Accommodation in the city can be found in the magnificent surroundings of the Canal Court Hotel. Centrally located, the hotel offers a superb base while staying in the city.

As you can see Newry has a varied history and a lot to offer for those tourists looking a short break away from it all. So come and stay in Newry and experiences all the city has to offer.

Welcome to the Travel Guide & Tourist Information for Chesterfield.

Chesterfield is a historic market town and is situated north of Derby near the rivers Rother and Hipper. Traveling to Chesterfield whether by road or rail is fairly straight forward. Chesterfield is Derbyshire's largest town and is located just off the A617 which is Junction 29 of the M1.There are train main land train services to London, Sheffield, Newcastle, Birmingham, Bournemouth and Edinburgh ,Liverpool, Nottingham and Norwich.

Chesterfield is best known for its "Crooked Spire" at the Church of Saint Mary and All Saints. The leaning characteristic is believed to be the result of the absence of skilled craftsmen, possibly due to the Black Death as this happened only 12 years previous. There have been other reasons given however. One is that the spire was so shocked to learn of the marriage of a virgin in the church that it bent down to get a closer look. It is said that if this were to happen again, the spire will straighten and return to its true position. Another saying is that a Blacksmith from Bolsover mis-shod the Devil, who then leaped over the spire in pain, knocking it out of shape.

Chesterfield received its market charter in 1204 from King John and now has one of the largest open air markets in Britain and the stalls are either side of the Market Hall, which in its own right, is a historical building. In the middle of town there is a collection of old and narrow streets that make up "The Shambles", which houses one of Britain's oldest pubs.

There are plenty of shopping opportunities in Chesterfield. Vicar Lane was redeveloped in 2000 and was made into a pedestrianised, open-air shopping area. This resulted in most of the existing buildings being demolished. In the process two new streets were created in their place and there are now plenty of major brands, such as Woolworths, Marks and Spencers, Co-Op and Argos to choose from.

Other developments include a large area, between the Low Pavements and New Beetwell Street being completely flattened in the 1980’s to build "The Pavements" shopping centre, better known by local residents as "The Precinct". This is where you will find the larger shops including Somerfield, Boots and WH Smiths. It has entrances opposite Chesterfield Market and also escalators lead down to New Beetwell Street.

There is also a multi-storey car park which was built at the same time. Chesterfield Library's main entrance is also located just outside the Pavements and at another exit you will find the local McDonald's. Despite all this development, Chesterfield has retained its character and much of its town centre from the pre-war era.

Chesterfield has lots to offer in the Leisure and Entertainment Industry. The Queens Park is located within the town centre and on the outskirts of the park is the Queens Park Leisure Center which has a good size swimming pool and gym. There are also several indoor courts (for a variety of sports) and outdoor tennis courts too. There are plenty of Gymnasium Clubs for those wishing to keep fit. All of this plus Bowling, Golf and even Ice Skating, in Sheffield, which is only about 20 minute’s drive from Chesterfield.

Travel time to Sherwood Forest is only 30 minutes by car. There are several night clubs located around the town, predominantly towards "Holywell Cross Car Park" and there are many bars scattered around the town including the infamous "Brampton Mile" which has 13 pubs on a one mile section of Chatsworth Road. It is traditional that anyone "doing the mile" has at least one drink in each pub.

The Winding Wheel is a multi-purpose venue, hosting concerts, exhibitions, conferences, dinners, family parties, dances, banquets, wedding receptions, meetings, product launches and lectures. Famous acts to appear recently include The Manfreds, Patrick McGuiness and even The Sooty Show

"The Pomegranate" theatre is a listed Victorian building, with a small auditorium, seating around 500 people. A variety of shows are performed throughout the year.
Both venues are owned by Chesterfield Borough Council, and the box office for both is located in the entrance area of the theatre.

The Chesterfield Museum and Revolution House are also both run by the local Authority and both hold regular free events throughout the year.

If you’re feeling hungry there’s plenty to choose from. This includes Chinese, Indian and Thai restaurants and plenty of takeaways not forgetting of course good old Fish and Chips.

With all of these different events, the wide range of market stalls and shops as well as the activities at the local Football ground Chesterfield has lots going for it and is a perfect destination point for tourists.

For tourists arriving for the first time, there is a lot to see and do. In this travel guide (tourist information part 1) I have provided some basic information and a brief guide to Chesterfield. My travel guide part 2 will look at the tourist attractions in a lot more detail.
