After the 2005 ACCU conference, I managed to get a few days holiday for travelling aroung the UK before returning to Salzburg. I decided to travel to Bournemouth with a short stop at Winchester.

The city's main attraction is the cathedral.

Alfred, king of the West Saxons (AD 871-899) drove the Danish invaders from Wessex. He created fortified centres, of which Winchester, the largest, was his capital. During his reign, the streets in use today were first established. Alfred was the most esteemed of English kings. He encouraged the revival of learning and monastic life, and laid the foundation for a single kingdom in England. This statue by Hamo Thornycroft, was erected in 1901.
