At Sherlock Holmes Museum, see the home where the famous fictional detective and his assistant Dr. Watson lived. The interior of the Georgian townhouse appears just as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle described it in his Victorian-era stories. Pose for a photo in Holmes's fireside armchair in the study overlooking Baker Street, view the detective's private belongings and papers in his bedroom, and check out the wax models of characters on the third floor. The museum's address is 221B Baker Street, just as it was in the books, but it's actually located between 237 and 241 on the street.

Sherlock Holmes Museum Reviews
Our group decided to duck in to the gift shop for a few minutes on the way to a dinner reservation. I wish we had enough time to visit the actual museum, but the gift shop had some great curb appeal w... more »
房子很小，1小时之内就能逛完。客厅特别经典，满满的都是故事，一次只能容纳10个人参观，隔壁的纪念品店买票，然后在门口排队。上楼之后有工作人员穿着女仆服装讲解。如果你是福尔摩斯迷，每个角落你都能说出故事。 more »The house is so small that it can be finished in less than an hour. The living room is particularly classic, full of stories, can only accommodate 10 people at a time to visit, next door souvenir shop to buy tickets, and then queue at the door. After going upstairs, there were staff in maid's clothes to explain. If you're a Sherlock Holmes fan, you can tell a story in every corner.
If you are a big Sherlock Holmes fan it is worth the effort to go. It is an attempt at creating what Arthur Conan Doyle describes in his stories. It is pretty good. It is furnished with Victorian antiques but it is small and has Sherlock’s study and bedroom then rooms for Mrs Watson and Dr. Watson. Some rooms have very good wax statues of Holmes and key people from some of the stories. The tour probably takes less than 30 min.
Had a great time! 15 people go in at a time. 3 floors to look through and a gift shop. First floor is guided, the rest are yours to explore .£15 per adult. Everyone is in period costumes and there's a proper shop attached with great souvenirs. A deerstalker hat is about £49. You know you'd look good in one.
