Trace Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watsons steps around the Victorian London they knew at the end of the 19th century- from the comforts of 221b Baker Street to the residences of the victims and villians in Conan Doyles classic stories.
Step back in time to the 1890's- London is a city of foggy cobbled streets and clattering horse drawn hansom cabs. Once evening falls the capital's greatest criminal minds plan their evil deeds in the shadows of the flickering gas lamps.
Join your guide on an exclusive journey through a Victorian London divided by a great class war. The rich engulfed themselves in the fashions of the day while the poor struggled in a Dickensian world of sleazy slums and alleyways. Reports of the mutilations of Jack the Ripper terrorised society and yet titillated them at the same time. London needed a new hero: enter Sherlock Holmes!
Be guided along the Baker Street area to discover Holmes and Watson's London base. Visit many of our hero's favourite locations as mentioned by Conan Doyle in the stories, including the spot where Holmes met Watson for the first time. See the settings where attempts were made on Sherlock Holmes' life, including the most famous attempt by Holmes' nemesis, Moriarty and discover the stories behind the world's greatest detective.

There are no parking problems or walking long distances to see the sights. The curbside service stops right by the attractions, away from the masses.
At standard level photo stops are made with commentary throughout. At our VIP levels with your own expert guide and extra chauffeur, stops are made at the key landmarks for you to go outside on walking tours led by your guide to sightsee in detail, hearing anecdotes and stories about London's past and present, while your chauffeur driven vehicle waits with no parking worries.
