England Riddles

Today we have six riddles for kids where the answer to each one is England.

These are perfect for using with all of our other country and geography riddles, with some of them also being good for using with other themes like food, sports and books.

The first five of them rhyme with the sixth asking your kids What Am I?

To use that last idea, read the first line to your children and ask them to take a guess at the answer. There are many countries that have a red and white flag, so if they don’t guess that the answer is England, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess.

Keep doing this until they either guess the right answer or they run out of clues.

I’m a country in Great Britain
Where you might drink a nice cup of tea
My capital is called London
That’s home to the Royal Family


This country is home to the Premier League
Where they take a soccer ball and kick it
They also like rugby and Formula 1
And the national game is called cricket


Bangers and mash is popular there
And it might have you licking your lips
Or there’s roast beef and Yorkshire pudding
Or their national dish – fish and chips


If you were to visit this country
Stonehenge is somewhere you shouldn’t miss
They have many very old castles
And the famous Buckingham Palace

And the cuddly Paddington Bear
Consulting detective Sherlock Holmes
And Robin Hood who kept things fair
