Sherlock Holmes Museum Easy to get to? Good for kids? Value for money? Worth a visit?203

The Sherlock Holmes Museum pays homage to the world’s most famous detective, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the late 19th-century.

The museum is decorated in the style of Conan Doyle’s stories, and has numerous scenes from each. Holmes’ first floor study, for example, still overlooks the street below – and Dr. Watson’s bedroom is one floor up. There is even a basement room for the housekeeper, Mrs Hudson.

The museum-type exhibits include the detective’s deerstalker hat, violin and magnifying glass, and a copy of Dr. Watson’s diary. The decor is strictly Victorian, with flickering candles, fireside grates and dodgy-looking waxworks of Professor Moriarty.

If you want to get in on the act too, then take a photo of yourself sitting in Sherlock Holmes’ fireside seat.
