Full description

Tour London in hot pursuit of the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes, and his sidekick, Dr. Watson. The 3-hour tour by iconic London taxi takes in all the main sights associated with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his fictional creation, as well as locations of classic Holmes films. You will visit 221B Baker Street, Holmes’s London address and the site of the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Your driver will tell a lively story as you tour, not just of Sherlock Holmes and the crimes he solved, but of real life detectives and London's “bobbies” (police force). Stop for photo opportunities outside Scotland Yard. Visit the London home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. And find out how and who he based the Holmes character on. Break for libations at the Sherlock Holmes pub, where representations of his Baker Street rooms are displayed. A new TV series of Sherlock is due in 2013 and filming will take place from March until the summer.
