The north east city of Newcastle upon Tyne still retains its medieval street layout, and its narrow alleys are perhaps most prevalent around the riverside area of the city. Stairs from the riverside to higher parts of the city centre and the Castle Keep, which were originally recorded in the 14th century, still remain.
To the north west of the city centre is Leazes Park which was established in 1873 following a petition by local residents to have access to some open spaces for health and recreation. Just outside the park is St James' Park football stadium, home to Newcastle United Football Club. The stadium, which has a capacity of just over 52,000, dominates the view of the city from all directions. Another green space enjoyed by residents and visitors alike is Town Moor which is located to the north of the city centre. It is larger than London's Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath combined. In the south eastern corner of the city is Exhibition Park, which contains the only remaining pavilion from the North East Coast Exhibition of 1929. Since the 1970s this has housed the Newcastle Military Vehicle Museum although this is now closed.
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.
