Germany is often described as being at the heart of the EU, and this is not just a figurative statement. The geographic centre of the EU is in Westerngrund, Bavaria – for now. Celebrating Brexit, however, is the small hamlet of Gadheim, which will take this accolade once the UK leaves and become the likely recipient of 10,000 visitors each year. For the UK, Morecambe Bay in Lancashire takes the honour.

In North America, things are more straightforward. Its centre has been shown to be (entirely coincidentally) a place called… Center, North Dakota.
