The neighbourhood of Marylebone and the must-see locations for Sherlock fans


We'll be in the neighbourhood of Marylebone, where the life of Sherlock Holmes can be traced, from his creation to his Baker Street address. We'll also visit film locations, such as the 'Speedy's Cafe' address of the Benedict Cumberbatch TV show.

We'll also see the Sherlock Holmes pub, a pub which features in the original stories, due to its proximity to the original Scotland Yard.

The medieval village of Marylebone has London's highest concentration of genteel Georgian housing. We'll see John Nash's classically designed villas and terraces around Regent's Park, Harley Street and Wimpole Street; and hear the stories about its past inhabitants, including members of the Beatles, the forbidden love affair between two of Britain's greatest poets, and the rooms where the real events of the film, The King's Speech, took place. This is also the area where Charles Dickens lived and wrote many of his principle works.
