i got 26/40, which is rubbish.
HOW WILL YOU DO ?
Ok, I cheated on one, I googled Chingford football player to get that one. So 39 really. But that hardly counts as London general knowledge!
Two of the three I didn't get (real name of Canary Wharf and tube station used for film shoots) there's no way I'd have ever got. The shortest tube line I should have got though.
missed a couple I should have got (like Waterloo & City) but I was never going to guess what year Grand Theft Auto or whatever was set in.
Was happy to get Aldwych though. There's still a map or two on station platforms which has that on it.
Missed out Canary Wharf, and the name of the council that sits at city hall (thought it was the Greater London Assembly)
they accepted GLA for that one too.
missed the gla one.
considering i've been to london twice i dont think i did too badly
I retract my 'this'.
would have got 39 too if I could remember Seb Coe's fucking name! Didn't get Aldwych. Pretty pleased with my guesstimate for the Grand Theft Auto one - only my second attempt.
The first unassisted 40 of the thread. Got the Houses of Parliament one with 2 seconds remaining. Got the GTA one by typing every year from 2011 backwards
Although I suppose I knew it wasn't going to be the 80s or 90s really.
I know jack about London. I suppose just aimless wild guessing would work equally well in a pubquiz setting, yes?
i've never even been to london
Not a bad effort
Didn't get the Canary Wharf, Greater London Authority, Palace of Westminster or the Kinks song ones...
