Yes, that's right the superb re-creation of Sherlock Holmes' study. Housed in the building immortalised in The Hound of the Baskervilles and featuring many artefacts donated by the Conan Doyle family, And not only is it the genuine articleas opposed to a tourist trap – it's free to visit.

"The original and best – there are several companies offering walking tours of London but London Walks (London's oldest) is easily the pick of the   bunch"  London, Cadogan Guide

"London Walks is by far the best"  Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Sherlock Holmes' London walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Sherlock Holmes' London Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. And – always with private London Walks and tours – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well nigh perfect. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they're good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing. Or indeed a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.


It all comes down to the guiding.


Don't just take it from us.


Why London Walks? Because you're worth it, that's why...
