Well I nearly went for Canary Wharf, 1 Canada Square - stroke of luck, given The Pinnacle is also known as TwentyTwo" - given all the seconds in this quiz. Well done all, it was a stinker of a quiz, tbh, @Mi-Amigo 😖👍🤣
I see airport codes on today's quiz, much more at home with those, provided it is not some outback strip in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains... 😉

Sorry you missed out on the Second Anniversary WRQ @BobM and hope you`ll be able to take part in today`s "Odd Questions" edition, which is now up on a separate thread.

 

@pgn 

Pleased you enjoyed the quiz and well done on your award.

As you said, this quiz was a bit of a stinker [the second tallest building being exceptionally difficult] - but, as it`s the Second Anniversary of WRQ and with a Diamond Thinker up for grabs for 12 correct answers, I thought I would test out the quizzers.

 

@MI5 

Pleased you enjoyed the quiz and well done on your award.

More than happy. Just lucky this week. Q10 and 12 were pure guesses. Also Bishopsgate, I dithered over!!

Probably one of the most difficult ones @Mi-Amigo? Great nontheless. Well done everyone.
