It got me spot on - born in Taunton, grew up in West Somerset.
 

DCLane

Found in the Yorkshire hills ...
I'm from a bit further north (Nottingham), whereas it has me from Northampton.

But I've not lived there for 30 years; Belfast, Middlesbrough, Dewsbury - which might explain things a bit.
 
As you would expect.

It had me firmly in the Thames Estuary, which is understandable given that my parents hailed from East and South London respectively, even though I grew up solely in the Home Counties. But once I took the extended questions part of the test, it placed me somewhere around Bournemouth for some reason - not sure where that came from.
