Enjoy this portable guide to the London of Sherlock Holmes, then and now. Packed with fascinating information about London past and present, and in a handy pocket-sized format, this new edition of Sherlock Holmes's London will take you on a journey of discovery
Walk the streets of London in the footsteps of literature’s most famous—and enduring—detective, the immortal Sherlock Holmes. From his fictional home of 221B Baker Street to the wharves and warehouses of the east end, you will see much today that is unchanged since Arthur Conan Doyle first created his much-loved sleuth. Other features of Edwardian London may be buried a little deeper, but can still be uncovered if you know where to look. With maps showing the general outlay of the areas covered in each chapter, and photographs of the modern-day streets and buildings of London, you'll be able to explore the city on a self-guided tour dedicated to the Sherlock Holmes of the stories, the films, and the television adaptations.
