Kingston-upon-Hull sits on the River Humber. The Home Counties are the counties around London like Hertfordshire and Kent, they are not suburbs.

Changed the clue for Home Counties, but Hull is correct. The Humber is part of the Hull.

Actually, the river Hull is a tributary to the Humber, and the city is built on where the two meet.

Can you accept Humber, as Kingston-Upon-Hull sits on the point where the two rivers meet, so although it technically does sit on the river Hull, I believe Humber should also accept it as a lot of sources list it as being on the Humber. Otherwise, great quiz!

Well, no, because there's no such town as Kingston-upon-Humber, and the question does mention the town as well.

8/20 (40%) of all the questions are UK related. For UK you need to know every small detail, for the other countries just the name (Hrvatska, Holland, Hercegovina, Hungary). I guess the author is British, but this quiz is way too much UK-centered.

Please for The Hague/Den Haag accept 's Gravenhage, the official name for the city.

The Hague definitely does NOT start with an H, in dutch it is Den Haag or 's Gravenhage (the article has become unrecognizable and fully integrated into the name). The Hague starts as much with an H as New York starts with an Y or Los Angeles start with an A (or even less so) or Buenos Aires with an A.
