For someone who has lived and worked in London for 10 years I found this harder than I thought I would. Its amazing how little we refer to the boroughs even though of course I have heard of all of them. - Good quiz.

Interesting that all the north east boroughs are the lowest known on this quiz. I wonder what the science is behind that?!

Really tough for a Yank. I knew the top two, and should have gotten a couple more - mad at self for forgetting Greenwich. I'll be taking this one again to try to learn a few more.

West Brom is in Sandwell in the West Midlands (although a tiny bit of The Hawthorns is in Birmingham).

Weird since there is no London Borough of Fulham, and West Brom is in the West Midlands. If you mean West Ham, that club is in Newham. Indeed the great majority of London's clubs are in differently named boroughs.

Yeah, I was mistaken on where West Brom was from, but Fulham is an accepted type-in for the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

something wrong with the display here, the map even before zooming is huge and covers the entry box and all the answers. I can't give up...

Yes, I have the same problem with the display... The map covers the columns of answers completely (except for the far right hand one, which it only covers partially), some of the timer and the answer box and I can only see some of the pause button but none of the others next to it.

Yes, the City of London has always been designated as a separate county from Greater London, ever since the concept of a Greater London was invented.

Interesting read here on how and why the City is so legally distinct from the city: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2016/feb/19/city-of-london-martin-parr-photographs-unseen-city
