The Game is afoot...

Lets start in Northumberland Avenue, and pause for a while outside the Sherlock Holmes Pub for an insight into the life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and how the character of Sherlock Holmes came in to being.

The Sherlock Holmes Pub was formerly the Northumberland Hotel where Sir Henry Baskerville stayed when he arrived in London to seek the help of Sherlock Holmes.

Right opposite is the Turkish bath where Holmes and Watson relaxed during or after a case.

This tour also passes many of London's famous landmarks and as your personal guide it will be my pleasure to share my love for my home town, and also point out a few hidden gems on route.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Somerset House
Not exactly a Sherlock Holmes stop, but a fascinating place to walk through as a short cut to the station. The site of a Tudor Palace belonging to the Duke of Somerset, later rebuilt as a great civic building in 1775. Recently used as a filming location for 'Love Actually'

Lets walk down a 300 year old staircase and make our way Temple station.

5 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Sherlock Holmes Museum
The tour ends at the world famous 221b Baker Street where you can either shop for Sherlock souvenirs or enter the museum which is set out as Sherlock and Watson's home that they share with their landlady Mrs Hudson.

We had a great afternoon on our tour with Richard. He was relaxed and flexible as he took us around the city. He had interesting stories and bits of information all along the way. We will definitely book another tour with him when we are back in town! Thanks for a fun day Richard!
