The Sherlock Holmes Pub

About

The Sherlock Holmes pub is a traditional English pub serving pints and pub food.

As well as a bar and restaurant, the pub has a secret - a complete recreation of Holmes and Watson's study and sitting room with a large collection of objects and photographs related to the characters from the books and adaptations.

The collection was put together for the Festival of Great Britain and moved to this permanent home at the Sherlock Holmes pub in 1957.

OK Sherlock fans - although this place is pretty touristy, you must go. Try to go in the afternoon where you have it to yourself, nice and quiet and time to look at all the memorabilia.

Formerly the Northumberland Hotel, it is now conveniently known as the Sherlock Holmes Pub. There's some pretty neat memorabilia about, and I loved the homage to Benedict Cumberbatch's BBC Sherlock on the...more

It kind of saddens me that the museum at 221B Baker Street has received such bad reviews from fans of Doyle's stories. I had really been looking forward to spending some time there, but after reading several not-so-glowing reviews, I revised our plans.

I pass this pub every day on the way to/from work. From the outside, Sherlock Holmes is warm and inviting. Clad in black paint and gold lettering and with ample crowds dotting the adjoining alley, it looks like a place a friendly-enough place.

Walked by this place just casually exploring the city, so glad I did! I wasn't expecting to go back later that night for dinner!

If you love sherlock like I do, this is your place. I wasn't in London long and didn't get to see Baker Street, so this was cool enough!

My friend and I walked in and the downstairs bar was packed! THATS OKAY! They have seating upstairs people! We almost left...more
