Having previously had foreign tourists complain that our venue should be in London because "Why wouldn't your visitor centre be where the visitors are?” There have now been three UK based customers debating our position in the UK, with various degrees of understanding.
A: It’s a shame you’re in the North. You should be roughly in the middle of England.
B: It is roughly in the middle of England, it’s in the East Mid-lands
A: That just means it’s in the middle of the UK.
C: Speaking as someone who lives in Aberdeen, I can assure you, that is not the middle of the UK.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around what A's mental map of the UK looks like.
