Full description
Immerse yourself in the world of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on a half-day tour that is perfect for fans of the hit BBC TV series “Sherlock” as well as the original books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and walk you to 221B Baker Street, the famous fictional address of Holmes, and now home to the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Now protected as a place of "special architectural and historical interest,” the handsome house includes a 1st floor study that has been faithfully maintained to depict the Victorian era. Pop into the next door Sherlock Holmes Store to purchase Sherlock memorabilia, and continue to locations in Central London used to recreate the Victorian atmosphere in the hit BBC series. Your guide can take you to Russell Square to show you where John Watson met the old friend that would change his life forever, or go to New Scotland Yard, headquarters of the Metropolitan Police on historic Whitehall. You will also see the spot where Sherlock jumps (or falls) to his "death" in the “Sherlock” cliffhanger episode “The Reichenbach Fall.”

Great tour, an absolute must for all Sherlock fans!

We had a private tour with Kevin just for the three of us. Kevin not only showed us the locations of the Sherlock series, but also told us a lot about London, history and life in England. Absolutely recommendable, we would do a guided tour with Kevin again in a heartbeat.

This private tour by Kevin Pearmann was absolutely awesome!

This private tour was indescribably great !!!!! Our guide - Kevin Pearmann - picked us up from our accommodation on time and is with us across London. Not only the tour to the Sherlock Holmes courses, but the whole 5 hours with Kevin were fantastic. He has told us so much about the history of London. Such a nice person - indescribable !!! This private tour will remain unforgettable for me and my daughters. Thanks Kevin Pearmann !!!!

A must do for every Sherlock Holmes fan

The tour was wonferful and kept all its promises. Our guide was very friendly and explained everything very good so that also non native speaker had the chance to understand everything. It gets one star less because we waited quite some time for the museum. But nevertheless it was a beautiful day and we're glad we booked the tour!
