Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson lived at 221b Baker Street from about 1881-1904. Apartment 221b was on the first floor of a lodging house, the landlady of which was a Mrs. Hudson. The first floor study which Holmes and Watson shared was at the front of the house and Holmes’ bedroom was at the rear, adjoining the study.
Dr. Watson’s bedroom was on the second floor next to Mrs. Hudson’s room; these rooms are used today as exhibit rooms.
The Museum suits everyone – those with little knowledge of Sherlock Holmes, those who know a great deal and those who consider themselves experts – but in truth, I found it a little disappointing. We were in and out within 20 minutes. There’s no mention at all of the classic black and white films or even the hugely popular BBC series.
In short, I’m happy that I’ve been to the Museum but have no desire to ever revisit.
