Oh thank you, Great fun....I got 8 out of 10 three times....which is good as I haven't lived in London for years! Made me feel a bit nostalgic actually.

That was fun.

9/10 - Proper Local.

One or two tricky ones in there.

8, which is not bad for someone who hasn't lived there in 13 years and wasn't paying much attention when he did.

Has someone moved Buckingham Palace? I don't remember it being all that close to the correct answer.

4/10 - Asda delivery driver - could do better. Surrey girl though, and occasional visitor so I don't feel too bad.

Apparently I have The Knowledge. For me, the knowledge is acquired by scooting around until I can find a street sign and the liberal use of Google maps.

Milkman!

Having lived there 20+ years, hadn't visited most of those places. I'm a north London girl, and not really an expert on locations of bog standard housing.

Catford - well, never been there but there was a bit of a giveaway.

I don't understand how being south of the river can be near the Isle of Dogs. It is almost a separate country.
