Sometimes referred to as The Granite City, Aberdeen is Scotland's third most populous city. Modern day Aberdeen's economy is strongly linked to the oil and gas fields of the North Sea. Traditionally, however, the city was involved in fishing, paper making and shipbuilding. The city has won the annual Britain in Bloom competition a record breaking ten times and also hosts the Aberdeen International Youth Festival which is a major international event which attracts up to 1,000 of the most talented young performing arts companies.
Buildings of note in the city include the Town and County Bank, the Music Hall, the Trinity Hall of the incorporated trades (which is now a shopping mall), the former office of the Northern Assurance Company and the National Bank of Scotland. All of these buildings are located on Union Street.
Situated next to each other are Victoria Park and Westburn Park. Victoria Park opened in 1871 and contains a conservatory used as a seating area and a fountain made of fourteen different granites, presented to the people by the granite polishers and master builders of Aberdeen. Opposite to the north is Westburn Park opened in 1901 which has large grass pitches and is widely used for field sports. There is also a large tennis centre with indoor and outdoor courts, a children's cycle track, play area and a grass boules lawn.
Located in the county of Hampshire in the south of the United Kingdom, the city of Winchester has been in continuous settlement for over 2,000 years. The city began as a Celtic hill fort which predated the Roman invasion. Following the Roman conquest the town grew and after several centuries it discovered a new identity as an important Saxon city. Eventually, King Alfred the Great named Winchester as the capital, first of his kingdom of Wessex and later all of England. It remained as such until the Norman invasion in 1066. Today, the city is an attractive and peaceful cathedral city nestled deep in the English countryside located close to London and Southampton.
Most of the things to see and do in Winchester, and the places to eat, drink and sleep are within easy walking distance of each other and the railway station. There are several attractive walks in the surrounding countryside, particularly towards Twyford along the Water Meadows, and on Old Winchester Hill. The city has a reasonable bus service, both within the town and to the surrounding area, although frequencies can be quite low with little service in the evenings or on Sunday.
