About This Quiz

London, capital of the United Kingdom! Surely there's no city in the U.K. more elegant, ancient and beautiful. London is full of storied castles, cathedrals and even ancient pubs where this revolution was fomented or that invention first came to life in its creator's mind. There are opera houses and West End theaters where you can see the very best artists in the world performing awe-inspiring pieces of theater. There are galleries full of glorious Old Masters and museums thronged with ancient relics. Even the buskers in the Tube are highly skilled professionals who audition for their spots and make good money. Truly, London is pure class. 

Of course, this means that when you visit, your mind takes only a few days to be full up with such wonder that you can't possibly learn anything new. You need a break! You need something entertaining, easy and possibly even a smidge trashy, at least for a few hours. 

Fortunately, we've got the perfect quiz to help you figure out which terrifically undemanding London tourist trap will offer you a good time without weighing too heavily on the old noggin. You'll surely learn something if you pay attention, but it won't feel like hard work. Have fun!
