You seem to have two 'g's and no 'a'.
Edit: No, I see 'a' now. Still two 'g's though.

Oops -- a is top right though.

Re: You have 2 gs!
There are no longer two gs as I made one of them a j -- hence the white blob where Camden used to be.
I'll mark you out of ten later.
A - Really expensive furniture
B - Computers and dodgy electronic goods
C - Theatres
D - Porn, sex toys and late night beer
E - Ordinary boring shops
F - Education
G - Museums
H - Really expensive furniture
I - Unaffordable kitchen clutter
J - Goth clothing
National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, London Eye, Aquarium, HMS Belfast, Globe, Golden Hind, Tate Modern.
Or, as is evident from my answers, fuck knows.
Heh... I think you've lived too far west for too long. :-)
Funny how the people answering so far are really good at knowing where to find two of the things I've mentioned.
Restaurants - a - Upper St
Boring shops - err, e? - Piccadilly Circus - really?
Computers - c - Oxford Circus/TCR
Museums - f - South Ken
Goth - j - Camden
Furniture - b - Heels
Education - g - Bloomsbury
Theatres - h - Theatreland
Porn - d - Soho
which seems to suggest that you think Trafalgar Sq is an ideal spot for buying kitchen stuff. Are you absolutely sure you've got everything in the right places? Or have they shut down the National Gallery in favour of a Lakeland?
*laugh* What makes you think you got the right answers and didn't fall into certain of the traps. (Though actually I have positioned that i a leettle further south than I meant to).
Ordinary boring shops almost every one
Computers and dodgy electronic goods b
Porn, sex toys and late night beer c and d
Museums g and i
Unaffordable kitchen clutter a
Education f and g
Imperial College London (f), UCL, SOAS (g)
Really expensive furniture b and e
Goth clothing the black spot at the top by Camden
Theatres h and d
London Eye, Aquarium, Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre, Tate Modern, Globe, Golden Hind replica, HMS Belfast,
Heh... the point is to work out which letter assignation best fits -- lots of letters could go in lots of places but I think only one match really fits all of them.
"the black spot at the top by Camden" (the letter j?)
Aquarium, London Eye, RFH, NT, Tate Modern, Globe, Golden Hind, Belfast.
Not bad -- I bet you can name the bridges in order too.
Hah. London is so LAST MONTH.
You would have been scared of the wildlife in my kitchen last night. There was a moth that was furrier than your back!

And was not quite so attracted to shiny things than your front?

Computers and dodgy electronic goods - c
Porn, sex toys and late night beer - d
Really expensive furniture - b (actually your b looks like it's on the row of coffee shops opposite, but I'll assume it's supposed to be Heal's rather than Starbucks)
Goth clothing - j
After those it all gets a bit vague and more of a "what steer
thinks quiz" than a "London" quiz, but... "h" I guess is supposed to be theatres (although it's Covent Garden, which is kind of in the middle of theatres but there isn't one there, is there?), so "a" would be restaurants. "i" seems to be in Trafalgar Square so I can't imagine what it would be aside from the National Gallery, so that would have to be museums. That leaves "g" being education, and "f" being ordinary shops (or possibly the other way around).
South bank stuff goes: Aquarium, Eye, Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre, then Tate Modern, Globe, Golden Hinde (or Hind, if you insist) replica, and then I think HMS Belfast is furthest east, but if not then it's furthest west. It's not along the middle bit that I'm familiar with, anyway.Edited at 2010-08-02 01:12 pm (UTC)
(Grin) It should be Hinde you are right. I only spotted after I posted. Honestly, though I bet Drake felt stupid when he noticed he'd spelled it wrong.
Naturally it's about what I think which is naturally correct. :-)
Can you do that? Doesn't the Fitzrovia convention forbid cross threading on Mondays?
