Home or Away – Us Brits Know Our Hot Spots!

When it comes to identifying some of the most beautiful places in the UK, us Brits are pretty good at it.

We recently put together a quiz challenging folk to identify the UK location when presented with two options. We were really impressed with the results. Over two thirds (70%) of the questions were correctly identified as UK locations more often than not.

Proof finally that we do know our Mullion Harbour in Cornwall from Agia Galini on Crete or Polperro Harbour in Cornwall from Vernazza Bay, Italy.

We certainly know our Cornwall

We wanted to create a fun way of reminding Brits of just how nice our wonderful country is and that you don’t necessarily need to spend loads going abroad to have a wonderful holiday. We also hoped it would serve as a reminder of some places that people have been meaning to visit but haven’t got round to it yet.

A number of locations in Cornwall featured in the quiz, and it was these destinations that we have the keenest eye for.

96% of people correctly picked out Polperro Harbour over Vernazza Bay over in Italy.

Minack Theatre Penzance was correctly identified by 84% of people when put against Tarragona Amphitheatre in Spain.

And the eternally popular Crantock Beach was spotted by 89% when compared with Labrelotte Bay, Castries, West Indies.

 What a beach!

One area where we don’t appear to be as eagle-eyed is spotting UK beaches. More than half of people (57%) thought that Coolangatta Beach, Australia was in the UK.

And almost two thirds (64%) thought that Saint-Malo in Brittany, France was a UK beach.

But we can forgive a few errors, especially when the weather in the picture doesn’t help the decision process.

With such a wealth of beautiful places to discover on UK shores, it perhaps isn’t surprising that so many people are choosing to stay closer to home when looking for a little break.
