    Which one would be the best contender, in terms of everything really. Don't *just* choose by size.

    Birmingham I imagine. Isn't that the next biggest city in England?

        If London was destroyed, it would just be rebuilt again and still be captial. If England changed its capital, Birmingham would have the best shot at taking it.

        Historically Winchester has served as the Capital city. I would imagine however it would be wherever Parliament could set up and run the country from!

        Interesting question... apart from size, what is it about Birmingham that makes it so likely?

        Manchester has more stuff in it, doesn't it? I'd want Manchester.

        Birmingham obviously, by size and population. Manchester would be second contender, but its population is ridiculously small, less than half of Birmingham's. Pretty sure there are other city's with bigger populations than Manchester.

        Cambridge or Oxford (even though they're not very big, although size shouldn't always determine where are what the capital city should be).

          :teehee: geography fail

          Anyway, I wouldn't nominate Edinburgh because the Scottish Parliament already has their base here. How about Oxford or somewhere like that?
