It's a simple question for most gap year backpackers and travellers: where in the world is Mount Everest? But more than 50% of Britons surveyed believe Mount Everest is actually in the UK, not in the Himalayas.
The results come from a survey conducted by OnePoll for tour operator Journeys of Distinction. 2,000 people from the UK were interviewed and the results show some shocking answers.
One in five surveyed didn't know what countries made up the United Kingdom while a quarter said that Ayers Rock, one of Australia's most famous landmarks, is in the UK.
