The majority of the UK can’t point to where Aberdeen is on a map, according to a recent study.
Can you name these cities and landmarks in the UK? (answers at the bottom of the article!)
In a survey carried out by hotel group Jurys Inn, 64% of those asked couldn’t even place Aberdeen in Scotland, and 22% didn’t even know where London was.
The study, which involved 3,063 people from across the country, also asked people to name and locate famous landmarks such as Stonehenge, the Angel of the North and the Giant’s Causeway.
36% of those asked couldn’t say where Stonehenge was located, 39% couldn’t recognise St Andrews golf course, and 23% didn’t know where the Angel of the North was.
And just over half of people didn’t know that the Giant’s Causeway was in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
85% of those asked couldn’t tell where Sheffield is located, and 76% had no clue where Liverpool, home of the Beatles, was in England.
Suzanne Cannon, group marketing manager at Jurys Inn said: “Our study has unveiled that Brits seem to be falling out of love with Blighty.
“Instead of wanting to explore more of their local cities and home country, they are being influenced by what they see on TV and in films, to escape abroad.”
