At Sherlock Holmes Museum, see the home where the famous fictional detective and his assistant Dr. Watson lived. The interior of the Georgian townhouse appears just as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle described it in his Victorian-era stories. Pose for a photo in Holmes's fireside armchair in the study overlooking Baker Street, view the detective's private belongings and papers in his bedroom, and check out the wax models of characters on the third floor. The museum's address is 221B Baker Street, just as it was in the books, but it's actually located between 237 and 241 on the street.

If you are a big Sherlock Holmes fan it is worth the effort to go. It is an attempt at creating what Arthur Conan Doyle describes in his stories. It is pretty good. It is furnished with Victorian antiques but it is small and has Sherlock’s study and bedroom then rooms for Mrs Watson and Dr. Watson. Some rooms have very good wax statues of Holmes and key people from some of the stories. The tour probably takes less than 30 min.
Had a great time! 15 people go in at a time. 3 floors to look through and a gift shop. First floor is guided, the rest are yours to explore .£15 per adult. Everyone is in period costumes and there's a proper shop attached with great souvenirs. A deerstalker hat is about £49. You know you'd look good in one.
