Baker Street runs between Oxford Street and Regent's Park and is only about seven tenths of a mile in length. It takes its name from the builder William Baker who first laid out the street in 1755.
Baker Street's most famous resident was Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective who was supposed to have lived at 221b Baker Street. Today tourists and Holmes' fans can visit the Sherlock Holmes museum, albeit at 239 Baker Street, as well as Madame Tussaud's waxwork museum and the London Planetarium.
