Head to the Sherlock Holmes Musuem


Fans of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes should ensure they head to the 221 Baker Street museum.

Celebrating everything to do with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous character, the museum takes visitors back to the time of Holmes and is sidekick Doctor Watson.

The inside of the house has been carefully transformed to look how it is described within the famous books and really replicates the Victorian period.

Visitors get the chance to have a look around Sherlock’s study, complete with an armchair by the fire. You can also spot his pipe, magnifying glass and violin in his bedroom.

On the second floor is Doctor Watson’s quarters and you have the chance to look over his papers, which contain notes on a number of the detective’s cases, including the Hound of the Baskervilles.

One of the highlights is an exhibition with life size waxworks from a number of Sherlock’s most famous adventures.

There is also a well-stocked gift shop that give you the chance to pick up some souvenirs of your trip to one of the most famous addresses in the capital.

The museum is open 9.30am to 6pm everyday apart from Christmas Day. Entry costs £10 per adult and £8 for those aged under 16.

To get to the museum, the nearest London Underground station is Baker Street – it is on the Bakerloo Line, Circle Line. Hammersmith & City Line, Metropolitan Line and Jubilee Line.
