Fictional places range from whole worlds, like C.S. Lewis’ Narnia or J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, to countries such as those visited by the protagonist in Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels. There are also towns like George Elliot’s Middlemarch, or just buildings, for example The Admiral Benbow Inn in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Some are magical places, whilst others are just mundane and ordinary.
This is the first of three quizzes on fictional places found, not only in literature but also in film, radio and television programmes. You may think that some of the questions are therefore ‘trespassing' in this section which, strictly speaking, is all about ‘Books’. Our excuse is that there are a whole host of villages, countries, planets and establishments which have entered our cultural consciousness, and a mine of fascinating questions about them which are just too good to be overlooked! Have a go at this quiz and see how many of the fictional locations you can remember.
