Visitors to places around the world must often be confused by their unfamiliar surroundings, and we feel it’s a safe bet that many a tourism official gets asked some strange questions. The folks at the City of London Information Centre have shared some of the strangest questions that people have asked them with TimeOut.
Here are our Top 10 favorites:
Visitors to London are extremely interested in other-worldly attractions, apparently: “On average, how many ghost sightings are there in London per year?”
They are also really interested in how big London is frequently inquiring: “What is the circumference of the City?”
Despite it being a work of fiction, of course visitors also want to know: “Where is Harry Potter Street?”
In London, transportation fees are paid via an “Oyster” card, but visitors frequently ask: “Can I use my clam?”
Then, there are some strange inquiries such as: “At what time is evil song at St Paul’s Cathedral?” Or, “At what time do the clowns perform at Piccadilly Circus?” Ot, even. “Which shop in London has half-naked men?”
Then there are the cute and cuddly questions: “Where can I buy Mr Bean’s teddy?”
There's even questions that are even more silly, like: “Where did the Beatles live in Liverpool Street?” Or, “Can I have tea with the Queen?”
