Good for kids? Value for money? Worth a visit?

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.

> Craig’s review of Sherlock Holmes Museum – “If you're nuts enough to visit Madame Tussauds then you might end up doing the Sherlock Holmes Museum on the same day, because tourists love a bit of Sherlock Holmes. Fish and chips and a cup of tea, catch a black cab down Baker Street, and then spend an hour walking round Sherlock Holmes' house. What could be more British than that? The first thing you need to do is… continued”

If you enjoy this then try: British Library (walk it in 30 mins or catch a train from Baker Street to British Library); Charles Dickens Museum (catch the tube from Baker Street to Charles Dickens Museum); Dr. Johnson’s House (catch the tube from Baker Street to Dr. Johnson’s House) and Globe Theatre (catch the tube from Baker Street to Globe Theatre).
