The Sherlock Holmes Museum in London

When we talk about museums in London we always think of the typical British Museum or the National Gallery.

But at the famous 221B Baker Street we have a small museum dedicated to the world’s most famous detective.

Although we already know that the character is fictional, visiting the recreation of his house is a curious experience.

Many people wonder if they really lived there but it is safe to say that they did not because at that time the street only had 85 numbers and 221 was a made up number.
