Question 10) According to a poll conducted by The Mirror, the average Brit has visited only 1/4 of the top 50 landmarks in the UK. Name of the Top 20 most visited sights/ places in Britain.

To avoid controversy here, am using this article only for my answer http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/uks-top-50-landmarks-how-2204163

Good luck all.



Surely you should be looking at the top 20 most visited sights/places in Britain, which was the question you asked and nothing to do with that article, whish is clearly just somebody's opinion on which are the best 50 places in Britain.  How many can visitors to Blackpool can be arsed to go up that crappy tower?    

Palace of Westminster vs Tate Modern

Lake Windermere vs The Yorkshire Dales etc

I have been through Cheddar Gorge and everything, but ...


Absolute farce.  

And reef shark isn't a species of shark.

I agree. I have been to Blackpool plenty of times but have never actually visited the tower. I mean, why would you?

That said... the question clearly labelled its source and as much as I can't see the point I answered accordingly.

At least no-one said Tower Bridge. I've been over that multiple times. Wouldn't even occur to me to suggest it as an answer lol

Seems a little ropey to suggest a source that meant a fair few had to resort to google?   Poor old BigReg who got a real one for 8 points.  By contrast, I would throw out half those with an ace. 

FWIW Have done the tourist walk over Tower Bridge and there is a visitor attraction there you can go in.   Pretty sure I went in but can't remember much about it. I can't see many millions of visitors going in there, but suspect they get a fair few more than go up Big Ben or get to the Cheddar Gorge Visitor Centre.
