A very enjoyable quiz - and deceptively tricky! I didn't manage to get 'Leicester' and I have lived here for 10 years!!!

One note for QM - I'd like to see Liecester accepted as an alternate spelling, just for those of us who don't live in the UK and have rarely, if ever seen the word (this is the first alternate spelling request I've made, and I've done hundreds of quizzes here)

What? How can you ask for an anagram to have an alternative spelling, you may as well ask for daciffr to be an alternative spelling for Cardiff because I'd never heard of it so rearranged the letters to make a word that I thought looked a bit like it might be a place.

it would be like accepting Now Yerk, for New York (hey that is a funny one! never knew it was an anagram haha)

The whole point of this quiz is that the letters need to be arranged in the correct order with no alternative spellings.

For "Wentpro" I kept trying "Portwen" until I remembered that place was just made up for Doc Martin. Darn you Martin Clunes for making such a memorable character/series!

Very enjoyable. I admit, I ran down the list of Premier league towns before I actually got to anagramming... got me a good start on the list.

Why can't I convince my subconscious that Nottingham is not a fictional location?

As someone who lives in Nottingham, I can assure you that it's a real place. It is the home of twice European football champions Nottingham Forest (1978/79 and 1979/80 seasons) and 1984 Winter Olympic ice dance gold medallists Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

Our textbooks for learning English in school was Nottingham-centered for some reason. I still remember they mentioned that Nottingham is home to the Olde Trip to Jerusalem, the oldest pub in the UK (although that's more of a marketing claim).

This quiz is featured on the same day as another one about fruit. I guess I didn't pay much attention to what I'd clicked, so I spent the first minute or so trying hard to unscramble all these fruits I'd never heard of. All while thinking that, unexpectedly, this was the toughest quiz I'd ever taken.

I think the anagram for Leicester should be changed to Erectiles.

Even if you had used the smallest towns in the UK that nobody knows, I would have enjoyed this quiz just for the anagrams!

comment Before taking it: I am prepared to type a lot of extra letters ;)

I always love the word worchestershiresauce, and hearing wustersos (or wooster)

"Kingston" should not be included for Kingston upon Hull. "Kingston" generally refers to this Kingston in London. "Kingston upon Hull" is usually referred to as just Hull (like the football team).

I struggled with two. The city I have lived in most of my life and the city that gives the county its name. Slightly troubling.
