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.

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

Dang I remember when I went to go watch the changing of the guard at the tower of london they always referred to them as the yeoman warders. All of the tourists signs in the underground and all around town refer to them as that too. Ah well I should have paid better attention

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.
