    Hello, have a work-related exam on Thursday so will have to pass :-( Thanks for the info about City Lit Sharon, will take a look. I've had scant luck looking for Sherlock Holmes walks. This looks fun, but the website is so confusing I can't find dates http://www.walks.com/London_Walks_Home/From_the_Rep_Walks/default.aspx#13389

    Or this
    http://britmovietours.com/bookings/sherlock-holmes-london-tour/

    Let me know if either of these sound interesting and I can investigate further. Enjoy Wednesday.

      The Sherlock Holmes tour run by Brit Movie Tours costs £140 for a private group, but only £10 per head to go on the public one at 11.00am each Saturday. Also, the phone app "London for Less" provides a 20% discount voucher, which covers up to six people. Would anyone be interested in doing this in the next month or two?

      I think it would be fun. Perhaps joining one of their regular Saturday walks would be the easiest way. It may be difficult to pick a Saturday that everyone who wants to come is free, but it's worth a try!

    Really sorry I can't make it along now, as I have to work late tonight. Love this book, and this would have been my first time at the club, so gutted I can't make it. Do you need a score? I'd give it 8.5! Have a good night. Hope to see you soon. Regards, Janey
