Sherlock Holmes Museum

According to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived at 221b Baker Street between 1881 and 1904. The house was built in 1815 and is listed by the Government to protect its architectural and cultural heritage.

The house was last used as a lodging house in 1936 and is now open as a museum dedicated to the life and times of Sherlock Holmes. The interior of the building and the famous first floor study overlooking Baker Street have been faithfully maintained exactly as described in the published stories.

Holmes' possessions including his deerstalker, magnifying glass, pipe, notebook and violin are on display and the upstairs rooms contain personal belongings and private papers of the great detective together with a variety of exhibits from his published cases.
