Looks like Primrose Hill. See the similar view at

"London skyline" on that page)

Thanks, everyone!

So it's the BT Tower on the horizon.

I notice there's no geocaches there. Is Primrose Hill part of the
royal park? For some reason The Royal Parks has decided not to allow
geocaches in their parks.

No. Pokémons are only on your phone, geocaches are real physical
objects.

Especially when on private property.

I was just pointing out that because they are in virtual locations doesn't
mean that the user doesn't need to be at a specific physical location

Agreed. (Or can you use a location-spoofing app?)

That's just a way to observe the Pokemon app, which assumes you are
on-site.

Yes, Primrose Hill is part of The Regent's Park, a royal Park.

Seems very reasonable. A geocache in a park is just litter.

Slight difference of opinion here, Geoffrey. The right answer is the 5-1 choice, Primrose Hill. So the rest of you were wrong.

Once again I'd like to say how amazed I am with Google Maps. It is such a good app, specifically Street View.

There is also a good game that one can play based on the app: https://geoguessr.com/ . Quite good fun, and free. You are deposited in five parts of the world and you have to guess where.
