They're all rail apart from one which is trams – and many of them are guessable from the regions or groups without recognizing the places!

12/14 too ... not unhappy with that.  Too busy laughing towards the end at the idea of the "Historic City of Milton Keynes" ...

Ditto, 13/14. Portsmouth/Glasgow had me as well. Annoying as I was at College at Portsmouth in the 60s

11/14. Yes I fell early at Portsmouth/Glasgow too. I'm very relieved I got my home city right, that might have been a bit embarrassing to slip up there.

12/14.  Glasgow has “coastal sights”?  Presumably with high powered binoculars...

Taking the ferry from Glasgow to Greenock and Rothesay was popular attraction, hence the coastal sights.
