Hi First off, an interesting quiz. I like how you've got things from all over the world. A few requests, please allow more time, I hadn't even finished reading all the hints before time was up. Next, please can you accept Harbour for Sydney Harbour Bridge, not all of us are American/use American spelling. Please can you also relax spelling and key words. For example, Pompei, Everest, and the like, as I knew these answers, but was at a loss on how to keys them in. The same goes for Gibraltar in which you've already given us Rock of ____. It didn't make sense to me to retype rock of Gibraltar to get it. Please also work on the clue for Bath, City of ____, does not narrow it down. I started with London, then Manchester and so on. Maybe something like sight of a Roman spa. Thank-you for an interesting quiz.

Yes, i was thinking the same thing for Syndey Harbour Bridge, because in Australia we spell it Harbour not Harbor and i thought it was ironic that it wasn’t accepted comsidering it’s an Australian landmark

1. NEEDS MORE TIME. I'm a fast reader and typer, and I still didn't manage to answer all the questions! 2. It's Pompidou, not Pompidue. 3. When the hint says "Rock of _____" why can't you just accept Gibraltar instead of having to write "Rock of Gibraltar? 4. Please accept Harbor or Harbour Bridge instead of SYDNEY Harbor Bridge. 5. Please accept Terracotta Army! I was going insane because I knew that I knew it! 6. More time. Thanks.

Nice quiz... but too restrictive on the answers allowed. e.g. Sydney harbour (with a u) bridge; Gibraltar for Rock of Gibraltar; cathedral instead of basilica for St Peter's, St Mark's etc; Rialto for Rialto Bridge....

Think you'll find it's Piazza San Marco, not Pizza, and Tower Bridge is not London Bridge which is referred to in the song.

Tower Bridge has nothing to do with the rhyme about London Bridge. It's a different structure. And the spelling is Pompidou.
