Hi.
I'm just wondering (hoping!) that someone will know the answer to this London riddle which is supposed to be a famous place in London, for a treasure hunt that i am doing

Could be Soho.

Karl Marx lived there for a while, so he would have spent the night there.

I go with Nigel's answer. I'm fussy about tenses ("spend" vs "spent").

Although I suppose you could be scientific and assert that he'll have rotted away by now (so will be spending the night nowhere).

Or you could take a religious/philosophical viewpoint and say that, once dead, he - being the spirit, rather than the corporeal wrapper - no longer exists, and so no longer spends the night anywhere.

...if you press it, they will come.

Yup, it was highgate cemetery, thanks! I would never have got that in a million years because i didnt know the quote.

The next clue was easy (a zebra sleeping on the track, a load of beetles on his back == Abbey Road) but the one after that is a bit of a stumper...
