Sherlock Homes’ London Connections

Grab your deerstalker and take a Sherlock Holmes tour of London, exploring places featured in the books, real sites that inspired Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as locations featured in film and TV adaptations of the detectives’ great adventures.

Locations featured in the film adaptations include Somerset House, The Strand, the historic Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich and outside the capital in Bourne Wood’s ancient woodland. Additionally, you can step back in time and visit one of the world’s most famous addresses, 221b Baker Street, the official home of Sherlock Homes and the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived at 221b Baker Street between 1881-1904, according to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The house is protected by the government due to its “special architectural and historical interest”. The 1st floor study overlooking Baker Street is still faithfully maintained for posterity as it was kept in Victorian Times. This is a must for real fans of Holmes and Watson…elementary!
