England: Geography Quiz

The flags of England, Scotland, and Ireland were combined to create the flag of Great Britain. The design of the current flag dates from 1801.

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

The more geography quizzes I write, the more requests I receive to create quizzes for other locations. Several people have asked me to create a Great Britain quiz — England, Scotland, and Wales.

Rather than do that, I'm going to write three quizzes, one for each of these components of Great Britain which, when combined with Northern Ireland, comprise the country called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

When you take this quiz about the geography of England, please don't look at a map of the United Kingdom or a globe, or use the Internet or printed reference material to find the answers to the questions. Guess, if you have to, but please don't cheat.

Speaking of answers, you'll find them in a table immediately before the Comments section in the article. Please post a comment, tell everyone what your score was for the quiz, and suggest what subjects you would like to see on future quizzes. Thank you.

Great quiz, Daisy. I did pretty well on this one, 9/10. Must admit question 9 had me totally stumped, I'd never heard of the Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem before, a wonderful piece of trivia. I don't live too far from Nottingham, so I might pay it a visit.

Judi Bee 4 years ago from UK

Phew, got 10 out of 10! However, wouldn't have know the answer to question 9 without HubPages - someone left a comment on one of my hubs mentioning this pub and where it was. And I have decided that from now on we shall refer to St Michael's Mount as "Mt Hancock", at least at home!

Fun quiz, voted up and interesting.

JKenny,

It's nice to hear from you again. Thanks for taking the quiz.

I live in Southern California, and I've been to Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem. It was while visiting a friend who lived near Nottingham. It was on New Year's Eve, and surprisingly, the tavern owner didn't get a special license to stay open past Midnight.

Well, finally I have done well in one of Daisy's quizzes. I got 10 of 10. Ten out of ten. One hundred percento. I'm sorry to show off about this, but before now I have done so badly that I even came in under 25% on one occasion, which I should have got by chance alone. One of these Q's was an educated guess, another .... I'd read earlier from you on Judi B's comments, so that was lucky. Where is Wales and Scotland .. bring it on, I'm ready!!!


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Keri,

I'm so glad you enjoy my geography quizzes. Both Judi Bee and you had scores of 10 out of 10. The Scotland quiz and the Wales quiz are both on my "to do" list. I don't want to publish quizzes pertaining to the same part of the world one right after another.

I'm glad you're now following Judi Bee. I knew you would enjoy her writing. Take a look at the answer choices for question #8. The last of the four choices contains Judi's surname.

I published a Florida quiz this evening. Why don't you try your guesses on that one?

I got 7 out of ten. BEcause of my love of British mysteries and British TV, I was able to get many of them. But not all. I have ancestry in all four of U.K. countries, but I expect to do not as well in the others because of why I'm familiar with English geography. I expect to do the worst in Wales as little I read and watch is set there compared to the other countries.

The questions I missed?

2, 9, and 10. I didn't have a clue...


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Flora,

Thanks for taking another of my quizzes. I've traveled to England 13 times, so I probably couldn't tell how easy or difficult the questions were when I wrote them.

I've been to Scotland a few times, but Wales only once. I'll enjoy doing the research for those quizzes.

Just as I did with the Canada quiz when I used the area in which you live as one of the possible answers, I had some fun with the possible answers to question #8 in this quiz. Two of my HubPages friends, Steve Mitchell and Judith Hancock found their surnames as possible answers to #8.

I got 7. Nice quiz-- tough, though, except for Stonehenge. I liked the flag diagram, too. Do you happen to know why, when Ireland was added to the Union Flag, why the red diagonals are a little off-kilter instead of in the middle of the white diagonals? Voted up and interesting.


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

UnnamedHarald,

It's nice to meet you. Thanks you for taking my quiz.

I didn't use the quiz capsule when creating this article for two reasons... I wanted to include a photograph with each question, and I wanted each question to contain educational material. This approach caused my questions to exceed the character limit for questions in the capsule.

Handy little quiz Daisy. Sorts the men from the boys (or words to that effect). I stumbled on No.8, not looking properly and went for St Mitchells Mount. Aside from that no probs.

The one that gets even a lot 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 a few years and went in once or twice. You can look right up the chimney, but there ain't a lot of room for a get-together inside (if you ever had it, you'd know).

Alan,

Thanks for reading my article, taking the quiz, and commenting.

I was at Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem on New Year's Eve quite a few years ago. The pub hadn't applied for a special license to stay open. It closed before Midnight.
