As Sherlock Holmes would say, ‘There is nothing like first-hand evidence’ - it’s time you saw the real places that inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to create the legendary detective! This historical tour will begin at the place Holmes and Watson first met, and go on to a number of sites featured in the novels and short stories. As well as the London of the books, this tour will also take you to many of the filming locations for the TV series and film adaptations, which will be great opportunities to learn more about them and to take some photographs. You’re more than welcome to come in period dress if you want to add to the all-round atmosphere, although it’s not compulsory.
