Left confirming my hypothesis.

This Yank thought she was doing well to miss only four, but then I saw that was barely over 50% so either there are a lot of Brits taking this quiz, or a lot of others know far more about London than I do. (Or maybe both.)

I Love "Sherlock Holmes was said to live".... He was fictional!

Exactly why the quiz says "said to live" - i.e. by the author of the novel.

Charing Cross is not an intersection. The Cross refers to one of 12 monuments erected in memory of Queen Eleanor of Castile, Queen consort of Edward I. The crosses form a route from Lincoln to London (Charing Cross) being the final one, and some people undertook a pilgrimage. There is a major railway station at Charing Cross, but the intersection is actually at Trafalgar Square.

Wikipedia says its a junction. I'm not sure what the difference is between junction and intersection, but I changed the clue to junction just to be safe.

Intersections are where two major(ish) roads cross over (or intersect, hence the name). Charing cross only has one main road with many smaller ones going into it, making it a junction. yw

Very easy quiz, but then I grew up in London. I have travelled to Charing Cross many times in my youth; that is the only question that gave me a problem, because I simply do not see it as a junction or intersection or anything of the sort. It is a railway station and is so named because of the monumental cross, as described above. I have no idea why wikipedia wants to describe it as a junction; the nearby junction/interchange is Trafalgar Square.

Hardly anyone was executed at the Tower of London - most were executed outside on Tower Hill.
