Sherlock Holmes Film Location Tour in London
From US$15.53
Low Price Guarantee
Follow in the footsteps of London’s most famous sleuth on a 2-hour Sherlock Holmes tour. With your film-savvy guide, explore myriad feature locations from Holmes’ literary and cinematic journeys.

Literary buffs will enjoying see the sites of the fictional Diogenes Club and Pentonville Prison, as well as the charmed location of Holmes and Dr. Watson’s first meeting.
What to Expect
In the morning, head to Piccadilly Circus to meet your friendly guide and begin your walking tour through the sites and stories of Sherlock Holmes. As you begin, learn a bit about the beloved 19th-century detective – the brainchild of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – and his most tangled and fascinating adventures. Pass the initial meeting place of Holmes and his dear Dr. Watson, and continue to the Royal Academy building, used in the film adaptation of the 1979 thriller Murder by Decree.
Follow your guide’s carefully laid trail past famous book and film locations including grand hotels, pubs and gentlemen’s clubs. See the sites that inspired Doyle and have recently given host to performances by Jeremy Brett, Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jr., star of Guy Richie’s 2009 film Sherlock Holmes.
Stop at the site of the Diogenes Club, known for its strict no talking rule, and Somerset House, location of the fictional Pentonville Prison. Admire the lovely (and very non-prison like!) Neo-Classical architecture while hearing tales of the prison’s infamous resident, Lord Blackwood. This tour offers plenty of time to brush up on Holmes lore, ask questions and snap photos.
Your tour concludes on the Strand in central London.
