Good day fellow travelers!
London is home to some of the biggest and most well-known museums in the world that are filled to capacity with a diverse range of treasures. Students and teachers have the British Museum, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Gallery, and Tower of London all waiting to be explored on their educational tour.
However, that’s not all London has to offer.
London just so happens to have a handful of smaller and lesser known museums that are just as excellent! While the world-renowned collections are quite impressive, the city’s smaller museums are often less crowded and more peaceful than their counterparts. They are full of character and charm that any good traveler should search out, and that’s particularly true in the case of the Sherlock Holmes Museum.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Sherlock Holmes as being the world’s greatest fictional detective created by the remarkable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The genius sleuth along with his associate Dr. Watson resided at 221B Baker Street where the museum is located. The building dates back to 1815, and has been transformed to resemble their flat during Victorian times as described in the books.
Perfect for English or History focused student tours, the Sherlock Holmes Museum is dedicated to the life and times of Sherlock Holmes. It invites visitors to step back in time and see one of the most famous addresses in all of London.
Until next time,
