G is somewhat odd as the rest of the quiz is obviously refering to the British Isles and not to the British Empire. Just said.

Nothing for X? fear of things beyond the Channel - xenophobia; element jointly discovered by Scottish and English chemists - Xenon; Medical procedure invented in Britain - X Ray and so on...

Xray has nothing to do with geography though. However you could have an answer that strays slightly from starting with an 'x' to one that contains an 'x'. How about 'EXeter'. When you say it, it certainly sounds like it starts with an 'x' and it's a well known enough city in its own right - i.e. it's the county town of Devon.

If you want a slightly different spin on this quiz, try our version, United Kingdom A-Z

Thank you. A correct spin, I'd say, since this is UK Geography not British given the inclusion of Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland is not part of Great Britain, but can (emphasis on the word can) be considered British.

Shouldn't the answer for D be "ditch"?

I just found out that "vicker" is spelled "vicar"! I couldn't figure out why it wasn't being accepted.

Essex & Wessex make so much more sense now.

Although Wessex obvs not a county!

Oh, obvs. But that doesn’t erase its history as a Kingdom of Briton...

Essex, Wessex, Sussex.. really annoys me there's no "Nussex". East Anglia is a similarly derived name from the Angles too.

I believe it was Nossex, but the Brits were rightly upset about that rule and subsequently removed it from the history textbooks...

If you're including NI, which this quiz does, it's the UK not Great Britain. So the quiz should be re-titled UK Geography A-Z.
