I found this quiz easier than the Australia one, which means I've been living in the UK for far too long. I'm really enjoying these A-Z quizzes, though.

Presumably the tube station labelled on the map as "Angel" is located in the borough of Islington. I got that one right thanks to a stab in the dark based on Monopoly...

I scored 19 and was thinking the same thing, until I realized I only received one point, so I guess it's not so good. I was sort of close on some, though - Isling instead of Islington, Galway instead of Gatwick, and Strand and Shand instead of Shard.

If Kensington is the Royal Palace, what is Buckingham Palace. I got Kensington, only because of the K. Isn't Buckingham Palce where the Queen lives?

There are many royal residences. Kensington Palace is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Kate and William).

You are correct Buckingham Palace is the main Palace where the queen lives.

See here on Wikipedia for a list of each royals' (many) residences. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_British_royal_residences

Not a Londoner, is there anything special about crossings on Abbey Road?

Feb 15, 2016
As a driver it is where you have to wait for longer than usual for idiots to walk across the road in single file. There's usually 4 of them at a time. Frustrating.

I guess they choose it so americans had a bigger chance of guessing it? otherwise they might have thought, crosswalk does not start with a z and neither does trafficlight. or perhaps even think of things like deer crossing, if the question was merely "type of crossing"

Miss k, l, o, s, v And only Shard I could ve gotten I think. (other sound vaguely familiar, but so vaguely, I wouldnt have come up with it myself). Still, pleased enough with the 20/25 I got. (though I suspect the results are a bit skewed, I only beat 40% with that, so I think a lot of people avoided this quiz and it is mainly British people that took the quiz.)

btw (but hard to implement maybe) but i think it would be awesome if you could see in a quiz the percentages of nationalities that took a quiz. (Even better if it is per answer, but that would clutter everything up)

Got all these easily but I should as I live near London and worked there for 20 years. Might not do quite so well if it were a different city.
