For S we are visiting the Sherlock Holmes Museum!
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived in a Victorian lodging house at 221b Baker Street between[masked], according to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The house was built in 1815 and is listed by the Government to protect its architectural and cultural heritage.
It is open as a museum dedicated to the life and times of Sherlock Holmes, and the interior has been faithfully maintained for posterity exactly as described in the published stories.
