Partial:

colors of magic:

5 colors in the game Magic: The Gathering (green, red, blue, black, white)

poules francaises:

3 French hens

gestation months:

9

nations playing rugby:

6

friends of Balthazar:

might be 2 other biblical Wise Men or Magi?

is imaginary squared:

-1 (the number i squared)

six mod three:

0

days of Hanukkah:

8 nights, but that might mean 9 days?

towers of Tolkien:

2 as the name of the second novel, although after a bit of googling it may be 3 White Towers

total (wrong):

again, this probably isn't right but putting this all together, you get 53962-1082, or 52880?

total (maybe right?):

using the GPS coordinates (thanks @rhsquared for finding this idea) 53.962, -1.082 puts me (according to the thing I'm using) in "Top of York Minster", in the UK.

  • $\begingroup$ One of your answers is incorrect, but otherwise, you're doing well, +1 $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Oct 29 '18 at 14:03
  • $\begingroup$ I realised one of the clues had several answers so changed it. Also your final answer is missing a number (and not doing the correct thing) $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Oct 29 '18 at 14:20
  • $\begingroup$ On the ones you're unsure of, the first numbers are correct $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Oct 29 '18 at 14:27
  • $\begingroup$ The first one could be 2 - White and Black magic. Or it could be 8, from the Discworld series. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Oct 29 '18 at 14:43
  • $\begingroup$ The numbers in your final answer are correct, what you do with them is not. Have a look at hint 1 $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Oct 29 '18 at 14:49

A blind guess:

As there is a geography tag, I'm assuming that the answer from @ExcitedRaichu are coordinates which point us at Travemunde, Germany https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/53%C2%B057'43.2%22N+10%C2%B049'12.0%22E/@53.9633143,10.812969,16.25z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d53.962!4d10.82

  • $\begingroup$ You're on the right line but your decimal point is in the wrong place. (and pay attention to the sign of the number) $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Oct 29 '18 at 16:43

Using the two previous answers from @ExcitedRaichu and @rhsquared, the coordinates seem to be 53.962, -1.084, thus I think that you are pointing to the great statue of Constantine that is near York Minister : https://www.google.com/maps/place/Constantine+The+Great+Statue/@53.9623292,-1.0841092,17z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x487931a5d58341b1:0x97daca52f7800d35!2sCath%C3%A9drale+et+%C3%89glise+M%C3%A9tropolitaine+de+Saint+Pierre+%C3%A0+York!8m2!3d53.9623292!4d-1.0819205!3m4!1s0x487931a673e7f679:0x119de7fe97ee3ed4!8m2!3d53.9618374!4d-1.0817423
