Sherlock Holmes' residence at 221B Baker Street, London

I have grown up reading Sherlock Holmes' novels and stories. His mastery over disguises, his forensic skills, his reasoning and his pairing with Dr. Watson make reading his stories a pleasure.  If you are a Holmes fan, you will know that he resided at 221B, Baker Street in London. While returning from Little Venice recently we headed to Baker Street to look at Holmes' residence. It was like a dream. All the stories that I had read came flashing back to me and a part of me was hoping that Holmes would come walking out of that door.









If you are a Holmes fan, do visit Baker Street while you are in London. Just next to 221B is the Sherlock Holmes Museum. A privately run museum, it is open daily from 9.30 am to 6:00pm except on Christmas day. We reached the museum at 6:00 and so could not take the tour. If you plan to visit the museum be there by 5:00pm as you will need atleast an hour to enjoy what it has to offer.
