221b Baker St. - Sherlock Holmes Home
Updated: Nov 14, 2022
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional figure. One can almost forget it when he visits one of the most known addresses in the world – 221b Baker Street – the home of the most famous consultant detective in the world.
The house makes you almost believe Sherlock Holmes was alive – not a figure written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. According to Doyle's stories, Holmes lived here between 1881-1904 with his partner and friend, Dr. Watson, and Mrs. Hudson, the landlady.
While arriving, buy tickets at the next souvenir shop (15 Pounds), and then take your place in the line, where a 19th-century fully-dressed Englishman will escort you inside the house.
The first floor hosts the study of Holmes and Watson and Holmes's bedroom. Mrs. Hudson's and Dr. Watson's bedrooms are on the 2nd floor and used as exhibit rooms, where you can watch the newspapers, books, letters, photos, and figures from Holmes's adventures.
This is a must-visit place for Sherlock Holmes fans.
