Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. I've got my best suit on today. Monty has set up a job interview for me to start the day off. A friend of his runs a design agency near a tube station on the Northern line, which will make for easy commuting; it's just around the corner from the tube station Monty calls ANCIENT THOROUGHFARE. Which station should I go to?

Answer: Old Street

Old Street in Islington, is on the Northern line between Angel and Moorgate and many a design agency can be found around there, as well as (purely coincidentally of course) many trendy bars.

Luckily, he had a big win on the gee-gees yesterday and he has given me his betting slip so I can pick up the winnings from his bookie. His note tells me that the shop is at PACHYDERM AND CHESS MOVE. Which tube station do I go to next?

Answer: Elephant and Castle

An elephant was once classified in the order pachydermata and although this classification is now obsolete, elephants are still referred to as pachyderms informally. To castle in chess is to move the king two spaces towards the king rook, with the rook in turn moving to the space adjacent to the king on the other side.

Elephant and Castle in South East London is on the Northern and Bakerloo lines. The name of the area probably comes from the pub that was situated by the prominent road junction in the area in the eighteenth century. It is not, contrary to popular belief, a contraction of the phrase "Infanta de Castile".

I am not to open it but to deliver it to an old drinking buddy of his who works as a concierge at a hotel near TRIBUTE STATUE tube station in the City.

Answer: Monument

Monument station can be found on the District and Circle lines in the City of London. It is connected by underground walkways to Bank station.

The arts complex includes the Barbican theatre which was formerly the London home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Barbican Concert Hall, home to the London Symphony Orchestra, an art gallery and a multi-screen cinema.
