How London Are You?

  1. You got:

    Probably Northern

    You’re 0% London, and you’re probably very happy about it.

  2. You got:

    As London as a tourist in Piccadilly Circus

    It’s all a bit new and overwhelming. You’d probably get the tube to get between Covent Garden and Leicester Square even though you can walk it in two minutes.

  3. You got:

    As London as a suburban commuter

    You’re slowly getting to grips with the way London works, but still feel like a tiny fish in a big, smokey pond.

  4. You got:

    As London as a dangling London mayor

    Which is pretty damn London-y. Although you definitely have smarter hair.

  5. You got:

    As London as a Stephen Fry riding a black cab in the Thames

    I think we can all agree you can’t get much more London than that. Well done you.
