Google Maps Challenge #2

This is my second "Google Maps Challenge". Nothing to buy - it's free! 
Everything you need to get started is right here.
Prize: $25 Amazon gift card. (Valid only in the US).

This Google Maps Challenge is global - the locations could be anywhere in the world. I've created a set of four clues that will lead you to specific locations that can be found using Google Maps. There are four specific locations that need to be found. All four clues must be solved to submit a valid entry for a chance to win the $25 Amazon gift card. Only one prize will be awarded. Contest ends July 31. Winner will be chosen at random on August 1 from all correct entries received by midnight (Eastern time) on July 31. If no correct entries are received by that time, I may extend the deadline.

The Clues

Clue #1
I wasn't the Master but I earned that degree
When I lived within SW59ST.
You won't see a magistrate, nor a Doctor, nor duke
But you will see a box that's not meant for a juke.

Clue #2
Near where I studied there was a strange little place.
Chuck would be happy; oh the look on his face!
As George IV might take his old white horse,
I'd browse for a bit till I resumed my course.

Clue #3
Southeast of the house of mercy (or is it disgrace?)
The lion of the tribe of Judah may have passed through this place.
If you trust in what he says, you won't have to wait.
You'll get up and walk right through this gate.

Clue #4
It gets a bit chilly in the town of stars.
And to get around you won't use cars.
Wear your Sunday best and put on your fleece
When you go to visit the Queen of Peace.
