About This Quiz

Home is where the heart is, and if you love stories, then your heart is probably with Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes or the Crawley family—and if it is, then surely it's time for the rest of you to join your heart and set up residence in the same place as your favorite heroes. Fortunately, we're here to help you identify the fictional home that would suit you best!

Of course, you can't really go and live at a fictional residence (except Sherlock Holmes' place, which has been made real by the local council, in a spirit of maximizing the tourist pound wherever possible). Still, you can choose which one would suit you best, based on your personality, lifestyle, who you want to live with and how you prefer to live. For some, this might simply be a pleasant daydream, but for others, it might help in working out what sort of place or lifestyle we'd actually find most suitable. If you're a city person and all you can think about is "Downton Abbey," perhaps it's time to look for a job at the National Trust or Countryside Alliance. If you're currently living in a tiny apartment or you never stand up for yourself, perhaps you can take inspiration from Eric Wimp, resident of 29 Acacia Road, who enjoys a nice-sized house and regularly metamorphoses into a kickass superhero.

It's time to find the home that works for you — and perhaps, get inspired to make a real-life change to a house like it, or a life a little more like its owner. Let's get started!
