Do most people know where the exact centre of their city lies?

This report from the mapping company, Esri UK looks at ten UK cities and has found the exact centres of each city.  Most people living in a city will have their opinion about the centre; but surprisingly they often turn out to located away from the CBD and the famous attractions that influence their city.  Check out the findings to see how urban sprawl has led to the "real" city centres being a distance away from their traditional commercial centres.
