The splendid four-storey Georgian townhouse dates back to 1815, but it’s fictional occupant, Sherlock, lived in the home from 1881 to 1904. The small and intimate setting is filled with treasured items that fans of the novel will instantly recognise! Be greeted by the London ‘bobby’ (policeman) at the front door, then meet fascinating tour guides in Victorian costumes as they take you from each intriguing room to the next. Each session around the quaint London home lasts between 30-45 minutes. I wonder how many clues you can uncover about Holmes in that time…Did you know the museum has the largest collection in the world for Sherlock Holmes memorabilia and gifts? It might be time to hit the gift shop for some authentic Sherlock merch!
