Can you complete Geographical’s Giant Boxing Day Crossword puzzle?
Welcome to Geographical’s Giant Boxing Day Crossword! The bumper crossword has 401 geographical clues for you to solve – everything from capital cities to obscure islands to test your knowledge of the world, thanks to Clocktower Crosswords.
It’s far too big to fit onto a small web page and definitely not doable on a smartphone, but we’ve done our best to make it as accessible as possible. You can open the link below for the online version – there will be a lot of scrolling and you’ll have to do a fair bit of screen-shooting, cutting and pasting to join it all together for submission, but crosswords are supposed to be a challenge, right!?
(If you find it’s taking a bit of extra time, you can hit the save button in the top left corner and come back to it later – but make sure your browser isn’t set to clear cookies on exit, or you may lose all your work!)

Alternatively, you can print out the .pdf booklet with the grid and all the questions (you’re still going to need some sticky tape!)
