Lauren Does London: 221B Baker Street

I’m a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes so I had to visit 221B Baker Street (yes, that’s the address). My sister had been to London before, so she’d already gone here, but she happily brought me back so I could check it out. There is a Sherlock Holmes Museum here where you can pay to go on the tour. I didn’t really feel the need to do so. Instead, I just visited the Sherlock Holmes Shop, which is attached to the museum. Here, you can find all sorts of fun Sherlock themed items to look at and buy. I ended up getting two pens, a bookmark, and a tote bag to commemorate my visit.

Outside of the museum/shop there is a man “on guard” with some hats next to him. You’re welcome to grab a hat and snap a photo with him, so I did! The hat I chose would make me Dr. Watson, I believe!

Whether you visit the actual museum or not, I do think visiting 221B Baker Street is a must if you’re a Sherlock Holmes fan. Just think of the photos you can get! And I do recommend checking out the shop at the very least.

  1. Oh, how fun! I love stuff like this. That’s one of the things I like so much about contemporaries, that I can go and find these places in real life

    This is awesome! My whole family would want to visit. My 12 year old just started watching the other Sherlock Homles with Benedict (Dr. Strange) and she loved the Sherlock books before, but loves it even more now. Thanks for sharing your wonderful visit with us!
