SHERLOCK HOLMES MUSEUM

SHERLOCK HOLMES MUSEUM
SHERLOCK HOLMES MUSEUM

The Sherlock Holmes Museum is a privately run attraction dedicated to the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. It isn’t, strictly speaking, a Sherlock Holmes museum because the chap never existed.  And, despite the address being 221B Baker Street, just like in the books by Arthur Conan Doyle, it is situated at the north end of Baker Street between numbers 237 and 241.  It is in a genuine Georgian house, however.  The attraction celebrates the period when Holmes and his side-kick, Dr Watson, were busy and features recreated scenes from the stories.  It is immensely popular with visitors, despite a relatively hefty entrance fee; a lesson for us all.
