It’s Wednesday and time for another travel quiz.

Where in the world is this fab Art Deco building?

Where in the World

Hint: If you’re a mystery geek like me, you might recognize this as the residence of a famous detective.

Think you know the secret location? A winner will be selected among those who give the correct answer. She/he will get a mention here and on Sophie’s World’s facebook page.

Moderation is switched on, so don’t worry about giving away the answer if you know it. All comments will be published simultaneously. So go on, have a guess!

Headquarters of Hercule Poirot

Update 17 February 2011
As many of you guessed, or perhaps knew, this is Poirot’s HQ in London. It’s called Whitehaven Mansions in the series, and Florin Court in the real world. My daughter is a Poirot fan and dragged us along to see it. (Rent seems reasonable, by the way).

Luckily, it turned out to be a short walk from all sorts of interesting landmarks: St Paul’s, the Gherkin and the City of London. And it’s just a minute or two down the road from historically interesting Smithfield, sight of numerous public executions. And a 12th century meat market (still in operation).

Eric of Trans-Americas Journeys, Jim of Around the World in Eighty Years, Dick Jordan of Tales Told from the Road and Mette of Italian Notes. You’re all winners! Honourable mention to Ana of Ana’s Travels.
