Hate is far to strong of a word to use in this scenario. Sherlock Holmes never truly "hated" the Scotland Yard. However, he did dislike working with them because his methods were not compatible with those of the Scotland Yard. Often working with a member of the yard hampered Holmes' abilities to sol…ve the case and catch the perpetrator to his satisfaction. (MORE)

The English king granted them an area fortheir embassy. This area which they inhabited in London was knownas "Scotland Yard".

The answer will either be a garbage dump, tombs of famous people, criminal investigation or prizewinning roses.There's also a park in Edinburgh called Scotland Street Yard, where there's a play park?
Yes, 1 million yards is roughly 568 miles. Leicester to Aberdeen is only 442 miles, so you would still have 126 miles spare!
I thinkyoujust open the door and walk up to the reception desk - seeing as it is a building in London that houses the Metropolitan police HQ....
The London Police force was the idea of Sir Robert Peel, Bobby is a shortened form of Robert, so they police were Bobbie's men.

Scotland is a very beautiful country. And you can do all things that can be done in Occident. What do you believe Scotland is ?

Scotland Yard (actually, New Scotland Yard) is the headquarters of the London Metropolitan Police Service. Their mailing address is: Metropolitan Police Service New Scotland Yard Broadway London, United Kingdom SW1H 0BG
It isn't. The Headquarters of the Metropolitan Police is called Scotland Yard because their original office was in a street in London called Scotland Yard. Eventually they outgrew their original office and moved into new premises a few hundred yards away which they named New Scotland Yard to differe…ntiate the new office from the old one. About 30 years ago, they outgrew New Scotland Yard and moved to a new modern purpose built building not far away. 'Scotland Yard' is now a generic term referring to the headquarters of London's police service, although it hasn't been situated in 'Scotland Yard' for about 100 years. The 'new' in the name is no longer used. (MORE)

"New Scotland Yard" is the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police - the police service for Greater London, England. The current "New Scotland Yard" is actually the second building with this name; the first was converted into offices for the UK Parliament.
