Os tricky place names quiz

By Jonathan Elder

Published on 4 min read

We’ve created this challenging place names quiz to see how easily you can be tricked with made up places.

For each pair of place names, one is real and the other is either fictional or completely made up. We’ve used the place name search in OS Maps online to verify these: you can use it to find more or even create your own. Make your choice and see how many you get correct.
