The Sherlock Holmes Museum

Escape the London bustle, step back in time, and enter a world of gas light, Victorian curiosities, and many of the objects, letters and characters from Sherlock Holmes’ most famous cases. The Sherlock Holmes Museum is situated at 221B Baker Street, London, one of the world’s most famous addresses. According to the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, super sleuth Sherlock Holmes made this his residence from 1881 to 1904. His rooms have been faithfully maintained to give visitors from all round the globe an insight into the life and stories of the world’s first consulting detective, and a memorable, authentic experience of Victorian London.

A splendid four-storey Georgian townhouse dating back to 1815, the Museum building served for many decades as a lodging house, but is now listed to protect its architectural and cultural heritage, boasting a blue plaque to commemorate the period of Holmes’ residency. The Sherlock Holmes Museum opened its iconic front door in 1990, and now attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world making a pilgrimage to the home of their literary hero. We are dedicated to sharing our knowledge, passion and love of Sherlock Holmes with all our visitors.
