The Queens' Chimneys

Last week I asked you Where are these chimneys?.

Darryl & Ruth from Williamsburg, Virginia were almost right in suggesting they belonged to an old hotel, but Steffen from Stuttgart was more spot on by describing at as pub.

As Ian said
not every passer by will have a clue unless they walk around looking upwards
Not surprisingly, Ghost of Red Pump Street correctly identified them as belonging to The Queens on Clarendon Place.

In a Pub Cricket game, The Queens might score 12 - look at the Inn Sign - it refers to the wives of Henry VIII.

The secret is disclosed.

What a nice building. And what an interesting game. But hardly to play it in Germany ;(

So, not an opium den then, how disappointing.

Cheers for the shout Gerald!

And to explain in brackets what my hint was 'these chimneys are seen easier by some residents (in Clarendon House for example) & visitors (using the Muliti Storey carpark) more than others!'

Like the pub cricket game also. Sounds like a good antedote to "Are we there yet Dad?" ;>D
