In the footsteps of Holmes & Watson (walking tour - around 1hr 45 min)
London in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries was home to both Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his most famous creation Sherlock Holmes.
It was in the streets of the metropolis that Holmes – accompanied, of course, by his faithful sidekick, Dr. John H. Watson – pitted his wits against some of literature’s most dastardly villains and pondered some of its most baffling cases.
The highways and byways of London are as integral a feature of Holmes and Watson’s adventures as are the main characters themselves, and no story would be complete without a brisk stroll, or knuckle-clenching carriage chase, through the fog enshrouded thoroughfares of the Victorian or Edwardian Metropolis.
So, come with us on a journey of discovery that follows in the footsteps of Holmes and Watson through the alleyways and courtyards of an area that features in more of their adventures than any other part of London.

Step back in time and visit The World's Most Famous Address - 221b Baker Street - the Official Home of Sherlock Holmes!
The world-famous consulting detective Sherlock Holmes lived at 221b Baker Street between 1881-1904, according to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Mr Holmes shared his rooms with his loyal friend and colleague Dr Watson. The house is protected by the government due to its ‘special architectural and historical interest’ and the 1st floor study overlooking Baker Street is faithfully maintained for posterity, just as it was kept by Mrs Hudson in Victorian times.
