Helpful little quiz Daisy. Sorts the males from the boys (or words to that effect). I stumbled on No.Eight, not looking correctly and went for St Mitchells Mount. Apart from that no probs.
The one which will get even lots of Brits is the bell in the Westminster Tower, same as calling the Union flag the Union Jack, aka the stern post on a Royal Navy vessel.
I lived in Nott’nam (Castle Boulevard) for just a few years and went in once or twice. You may look proper up the chimney, however there ain’t a number of room for a get-together inside (when you ever had it, you’d know).
Thanks for reading my article and taking the quiz. I hope you’ve a chance to take some of my other geography quizzes.
