Do You Recognise The Shape Of Your Borough?

We've set plenty of London quizzes in the past, but we think this might be our toughest one yet. Sure, you can point your borough out on a map of London, but what about when it's on its own? We've cut out eight individual boroughs from a map of London — how many shapes can you recognise? Answers at the bottom of the page. Note: these images may not all be in exact scale with each other — best to just look at each one individually.










1. Greenwich

2. Brent

3. Lambeth

4. Richmond — our favourite borough shape. No, we didn't have a favourite borough shape until we started writing this article, but now we do and this is it.

5. Redbridge

6. Ealing

7. Harrow — which we now believe to be London's squarest borough. Never mind Harrovians, haven't you heard it's hip to be square.

8. Tower Hamlets

(Note: the map we used for reference is here). Let us know how you got on in the comments.
