"I naturally gravitated to London..." Dr John Watson
Follow in the footsteps of the world's greatest consulting detective Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr John Watson on our Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour of London. Starting in Piccadilly Circus this 2. 5- 3 hour walking tour visits 14 locations across central London that are either mentioned in the Sherlock Holmes short stories and novels or served as Conan Doyle's inspiration. Along the way we will learn how Conan Doyle went from humble backgrounds to become one of the most celebrated writers in London, how Sherlock Holmes captured the hearts of a nation, and why Sherlock Holmes is, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the most portrayed human literary character in film and TV.
The tour will conclude outside the Sherlock Holmes Museum in Baker Street where customers can explore the museum's collection and immerse themselves in the home of Sherlock Holmes.
