Well, they are all used as informal measurements and comparisons.  The length of a London bus; as in the latest massive ship is the length of 58 London buses; that was on TV the other night.  An area the size of a football pitch, the Isle of Wight, and a very common one - Wales, they say it all the time - and lastly, an area the size of France.

Or maybe try an Apple Day.  Look on the net, there may be one near you, though it's getting a bit late now.  Also look on the Brogdale site.  Or look at the photos on the fruit tree nursery sites.
