    What place is this?

    A little competition/puzzle for you all. Along the same lines as the 'Which Hurtigruten' thread, but this one is for shore based things.

    In the image below is a famous building (marked within the red line), can you guess what building it is?

    Too difficult? Need a clue? Well, I would give you one, but there are two very good clues in the photo, one clue should give you a good idea where in the world the place is, and the other clue in the photo should tell you what the famous building is.

    The second clue may not be obvious, but you will kick yourself when realise what it is

    Can you spot the two clues? Have a look and try to work it out, if you guess correctly then feel free to post your own picture puzzle.

    Yes, absolutely Ivy. Sandbanks, the somewhat odd spit of land protecting Poole Bay in Dorset. Brittany ferries does runs to Cherbourg and Spain. Poole Bay was also for a time the harbour used by the Flying Boats as they lurched and bumped their way across the world in 5* luxury and silver service.

    The property is horrendously expensive on Sandbanks itself, and there are some very famous residents.

    We had a lovely couple of days there a couple of weeks ago, had a great time, and a particularly memorable meal at Rick Stein’s Sandbanks restaurant.

    All yours Ivy.

    Very close. This county has ferries, but they don’t go to the Isle of Wight.

    J-O - I wish!
    Ombugge - close, but you're facing the wrong way.
    Yves - very close, not the Isle of Wight, but you can more or less see this place from the north side of the island.

    I wish Ombugge. This is well out of my price range, more about that when it's solved, but no, this isn't the Bristol Channel. Not far away by road, but a long way by boat.

    Are you buying, selling or showing off your beach property??
    Me think on the Bristol Bay shore somewhere (??)

    Yup - your logic is, as ever, flawless Yves! Keep going.

    So easy!!! I did not expect that. Good! We had in our German TV a crime story and this was one of the locations.
    Over to you, Mark!
