Postcards. We might not send many anymore, but back in the day, they were an essential for every holidaymaker – whether you were heading to Cornwall or the Costa Del Sol.
In the UK, postcards have been a feature of our seaside towns and cities for decades. Not only are they great for gloating to loved ones back home, they make a nice keepsake to remember your trip.
Right now, we’re all wishing we were somewhere worthy of sending a postcard from – even if that place just happens to be a few miles down the road. But until the time comes when we’re free to travel once more, what better way to pass the time than with our British postcards quiz?
We want to find out how well you know the UK’s towns, cities and seaside destinations based on their reimagined vintage postcards. You’ll need a sharp eye and a good knowledge of our favourite staycation destinations for this one, because our quiz is surprisingly tricky.
Think you’ve got what it takes? Take our quiz below and be entered into a draw to win a £100 IKEA gift card. Just complete the quiz and enter your email address as the end.
So, how did you get on? Do you know dear old Blighty like the back of your hand? Or are you dismayed by your performance, and keen to see more of the UK and its much-loved holiday destinations?
With some uncertainty about what coronavirus could mean for our holiday plans, now could be as good a time as any to plan a UK getaway for when lockdown lifts. As our quiz proves, there are loads of places across the country which are ideal for a city break or summer holiday, and a staycation is always a cheap option for students living on a shoestring budget.
