Having some out-of-towners staying with me at the moment, we took to the streets on London to experience the main attractions & points of interest.
One that should really should be missed is the Sherlock Holmes Museum at 239 Baker Street (not really 221B as written in Arthur Conan Doyle’s books as it doesn’t actually exist).


Costing £6 (for adults) I could only describe this place as a tourist trap. The 4 story building is shoddy & poorly maintained with unfulfilling & scatty information on the fictional puzzle solving mastermind.

From the moment I entered the cheap fabricated home I wished I hadn’t. Dr Watson – being the only real life human inside – unfortunately failed to bring the story to life & telling us of his interest in retirement rather than submerging us in the tales.

Great stories, rubbish museum. Save yourself the money & read about him instead.
