Reading is not a city. Despite having a cathedral and being relatively large, it hasn't been granted city status. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reading,_Berkshire

22, which I am fine with since I am not from the uk and only been there once, a few hours in london when I was 14 which is nearly 25 years ago.

Though I should have been able to get york and bristol aswell. Perhaps norwich. But I did get lincoln and wrexham (the first well, once you come across it you will remember it, I think i saw it on this site before and the second because I was looking in to something that was held there once as a possibility to go to, but it never happened, really surprised I managed to get that name). The next lowest one I got is blackpool which I expected to be much much higher. I knew it from strictly come dancing, but I have heard it being metnion as the beachresort over and over, millions of times. But I guess it is not famous for a soccer team or university or something. Which is what a lot of people use as their source of city-knowledge)
