Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

That was quick! A view overlooking Bergen from the mountain Floyen, near the top of the Fløibanen funicular railway.

Here's some more of the view (please excuse the rough join).

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

North York Moors? Yes, somewhere there. Foul Green, near Commondale railway station, in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.4817798,-0.9768381,3a,75y,204.84h,87.32t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sXkrSoQu6zZhFEokOotw8_w!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo3.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DXkrS...

That’s correct, Þingvellir National Park, about 45km east of Reykjavík. Well worth a visit if you are in the locality. Very quick answer, well done.

Correct, well done. I believe St Paul’s and Liverpool maybe higher but I was referring to the size of the spire. Back to you Cyril.

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

I guess the hostel is a bit obscure given it closed some time ago and more recently the site has been redeveloped, unless you happen to have stayed there of course.

So here’s a clue so someone else can have a go:

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

Was that Warningcamp hostel, near Arundel?

No, I think you’ll find it’s Salisbury.
