Sherlock Holmes Pub in London.

If you are Sherlock Holmes fan and you find yourself in London, then the Sherlock Holmes Pub is definitely the place to visit. Inside this cozy pub you will find a wide range of Sherlock Holmes memorabilia on the walls and in the display cases. They serve a large selection of beer, traditional English food, wines,ales and other spirits.

It is a very touristy place and it is normally very crowded. When I visited London we drove past it in the City Tour Bus and then later I made my way over there with a couple of friends that I have met on the bus. It was too crowded and we couldn`t find a place to sit. We settled for another pub.

It seems like after all these years, the reviews for the Pub is still good. I found these pictures courtesy of Tripadvisor and was reading some of the reviews. Food is good, drinks are reasonably priced, atmosphere is great but it is busy and people advise to book in advance.

The main attraction is a replica of Holmes’ and Watson’s sitting room and study. The room is adjacent to the restaurant and diners can view the area through a large glass window. There is also additional viewing space in the hallway.

I have been fortunate to have done quite a bit of travelling over the last 10 years. By heart I am an adventurer and I love exploring new places, cultures and food. Travelling can become stressful and expensive. Over the years I have learnt to travel as cost effective as possible, simply by travelling more clever. Nelmitravel.com is a Adventure and Budget Travel site where I review Airlines, Accommodation, Transport, Restaurants and give helpful travel information.

  1. Looks like a fun place. It is amazing how this mystical person is still being copied today. Most recently in a TV show called ” elementary” and of course “House” I wonder if Sir Arthur would approve.

Thank you for visiting. Have a fabulous day!
