Grab your deerstalker and embark on a Sherlock Holmes Tour of London. This guided walking tour explores places featured in the books and real sites that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This unique tour features movie filming locations as well as adaptations from various television series about the detective’s great adventures.
This Sherlock Holmes Tour of London is a must-do walk for real fans of Holmes and Watson.
The walking tour of London starts at the very place where Holmes and Watson first meet at Piccadilly. It then takes in literary sites from gentlemen’s clubs to grand hotels featured in some of the novels and short stories. Your guide will give you the context in which these stories are set and how London inspired the author of the books, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sherlock Holmes is the most filmed character in all literature, more so than Bond, Oliver Twist, or even Jesus Christ . As part of the tour, you will get to see locations featured in TV and film adaptations with Benedict Cumberbatch, Christopher Plummer, Robert Downey Jr, and Jeremy Brett starring as the great detective.
Along the way, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take pictures and see the locations up-close.
Feel free to dress up as the Master Sleuth himself or any other character in the series (but only if you want to!). The Sherlock Holmes London Tour finishes at Somerset House on The Strand but please note that this tour does not include the Sherlock Holmes Museum at 221b Baker Street as part of the itinerary.
