Facts of London Quiz 2

Another quiz about the greatest City on earth. There won't be anything too obvious: nothing about Pudding Lane and no questions like "What is the London Eye?". If you get 100% you can print out the result, show it to the box office staff at any London Theatre and receive complimentary tickets to a show of your choice*. (* This is not true.)

With thousands of years of history these quizes could have countless questions. Thankfully, for everyone concerned, there are only 10. Because I have a life. Although I would say that, wouldn't I?
