How Well Do You Know Your London Landmarks?


My mom's addicted to this jigsaw puzzle game on her iPad (so much so that she's taken over my dad's iPad because she ran out of storage space on her own!) and will, every so often, send me an email with the subject header, "Recognize this?" It's usually a London landmark which I'm supposed to guess correctly - and I always do.

I've lived in London for nearly 10 years now, but I'm still addicted to its skyline and its monuments. I won't walk past Harrods without snapping a photo on my phone. I don't care if it makes me look like a tourist. I'm also partial to a sunset over Greenwich. Who isn't? When friends come to visit, I take them to Duck & Waffle for a bird's eye view of London, pointing out St. Paul's, the Gherkin, the Globe Theatre, Tower Bridge (which is always mistaken for London Bridge), and other favorite landmarks.

Hull Trains have created a quiz based on how well you know London's famous landmarks - and I'd love to know how you score! I took the quiz myself and - ahem - did pretty well.



Ten questions, four possible outcomes. Even if you don't live in London, it's fun to play.

Let me know how you did in the comments!

This quiz was created by Hull Trains - Britain's best-loved rail operator. Hull Trains runs 90 direct services to London every week, and offer savings of up to 60% on advance bookings. This post was sponsored by Hull Trains; all opinions are my own.

    1. Haha, it's been so funny seeing which one people tend to slip up on! For me, it was Downing Street, but for a lot of people, Piccadilly Circus has been tripping them up!
