What You Can Expect

Sherlock Holmes Film Location Tour in London

Sherlock Homes Tour of London

Meet your guide at Piccadilly Circus in central London, and then set off on your walking tour, hearing about Sherlock Holmes – the fictional sleuth from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s late 19th-century stories. The escapades of the deerstalker-clad detective were so popular that film adaptations followed the books, and filming sites are now scattered around the capital.

See the place where the eccentric Sherlock Holmes first met Dr Watson – his loyal friend and adviser – and hear trivia about the 1979 thriller Murder by Decree, that featured the pair. Visit the Royal Academy building, which was used in the film, and stroll around some of the pubs and grand hotels that were mentioned in the books.

As your guide entertains you with insider gossip about Guy Ritchie’s 2009 Sherlock Holmes film, walk to the Diogenes Club – a fictional gentleman’s club where a strict no-talking rule was imposed. After stopping for photos outside, continue to Somerset House, to see the site that was used as Pentonville Prison in the film. While the grand Neo-Classical façade of the building couldn’t be more different to the real-life prison, your guide will bring scenes from the film come to life with tales of the baddie who was held there – Lord Blackwood.

After exploring London, learning about the much-loved Sherlock Holmes character who solved no end of crimes, finish your tour on the Strand in central London.
