Points Of Interest

  • 20 minutes: The tour ends at Somerset House, to see the site that was used as Pentonville Prison in the 2009 film.

When your Sherlock Holmes tour of London is over, finish your tour here overlooking the River Thames - the artery that runs through the city of Sherlock Holmes.
  • 20 minutes: Meet your guide at Piccadilly Circus in central London, and then set off on your walking tour, hearing about Sherlock Holmes – the fictional sleuth from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s late 19th-century stories. The escapades of the deerstalker-clad detective were so popular that film adaptations followed the books, and filming sites are now scattered around the capital. See the place where the eccentric Sherlock Holmes first met Dr Watson – his loyal friend and adviser – and hear trivia about the 1979 thriller
  • 15 minutes: Murder by Decree, which featured the pair. Visit the Royal Academy building, which was used in the film, and stroll around some of the pubs and grand hotels that were mentioned in the books. Your guide will entertain you with insider gossip about different iterations of Sherlock Holmes productions including Guy Ritchie’s 2009 film Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Junior, followed by a walk to the Diogenes Club as seen in BBC Sherlock – a fictional gentleman’s club where a strict no-talking rule was imposed.
