About This Quiz

Great Britain has a large population, and indeed even its name is designed to convey substantial size — it's called "great" to distinguish it from Brittany in France. However, it's not actually a huge area. Thanks to the jetstream causing an ever-changing and frankly rather indecisive climate, all of its regions are a little different when it comes to the weather. Additionally, a triumph of good urban planning means that British cities do not sprawl like their American counterparts. You can be in central London and drive in any direction for one hour, and you'll be among farms and green fields.

This means that whatever sort of lifestyle you prefer, there's a place in the UK that might very well suit your needs. If you want wilderness and you don't care if you ever clap eyes on the sun again, head to the Highlands and Islands. If you want ambition and culture and money, go to London. If you want diverse opportunities in commuting distance from cute little villages, Manchester is your jam. Are you seeking sun, surf and quiet life? The Isle of Wight is right for you. It's all about finding the perfect combination for your preferences, family, and means. Let's get started!
