Information:

Sherlock Holmes - the fictional detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - and his 'sidekick', Dr Watson, famously resided in a Victorian lodging house on London's Baker Street. The deductive powers and adventures of this celebrated pair in Doyle's novels still capture the imagination of the world, and, real or not, thousands flock to the privately run Sherlock Holmes Museum at 221b Baker Street to lap up the atmosphere and pay homage to the fictional super-sleuths. The building, now set up to emulate the Holmes home, was once a real Victorian boarding house. Visitors can examine rooms full of exhibits related to the detective's cases, and buy momentoes at the souvenir shop. The atmosphere is realistic, and crime fiction fans who step into Holmes' first floor study may well feel a thrill of recognition. The Museum is open daily, from 9.30am to 6pm, and is close to Baker Street Underground station.
