221b Baker Street, the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes 221b Baker Street

Baker Street runs the ¾ mile between Regent’s Park and Oxford Street.

The southern half is largely commercialised with shops and offices, but the northern part still retains some of its original 18th-century character. It even became fashionable for a time, with Prime Minister Pitt living at No. 120.

221b Baker Street, and Sherlock Holmes

221b Baker Street is home to the world’s most famous fictional detective – Sherlock Holmes. The room that he supposedly occupied now houses a branch of Abbey National, so the Sherlock Holmes Museum is situated a few doors down at 239.
