    Which one
    Well, Winchester was the capital of Anglo-Saxon England and York was the capital of Viking England. So, historically speaking if the capital hadn't been moved to London then Winchester, and if the Vikings had defeated the Anglo-saxons then York.

    As stated in section 69 of the "parliamentary establishment act 1876"

    "In the case of great destruction, conflict or epidemic the capital city of England's neigbourghing provice will legally become the sole capital of the United Kingdom and all other provinces"

    Hence Cardiff would take over

    Anyone stupid enough to believe this really is a donk

    Winchester is a historic cathedral city and the ancient capital of Wessex and the Kingdom of England. It developed from the Roman town of Venta Belgarum.

    I thought of Birmingham and Manchester but no idea why I thought of Birmingham, therefore, it has to be Manchester.
