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.

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!

You should do it with these yellow boxes that only allow one answer at a time. As is, you can just type all major cities in the UK and get most answers right

no it doesnt. The yellow boxes are a pain, it takes so much time if you want to skip question. You can simply play fair and dont randomly type stuff, but just the ones you actually recognised

This quiz is a bit pointless as it is because all you have to do is to name british cities randomly.

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.

very very cunning the way the letters were placed. All of them looked sort of like real words which made it sooo much harder. Cause you get stuck and cant unsee things. Usually im very good at anagrams ( even for words or places I dont know) But these ones had me thinking hard ! Bravo! If the letters were scrambled randomly I think I would ve gotten atleast 4 more (sheffield nottingham newcastle and southhampton) now I got 21/30 Btw I think I have heard of all the cities besides lisburn (and maybe newport. I think that is an accomplishment in it self lol. Not really MY accomplishment though. Tv gets all the credit. (well you do still have to absorb everything, but can hardly call it an accomplishent)
