A walk with Sherlock Holmes

From Westminster Tube (Underground) station, along the bank of the Thames, via Downing Street, Trafalgar Square and Scotland Yard (of course) to the Sherlock Holmes pub in Northumberland Street, follow the world’s favourite detective and hear clips from the new movie coming this Christmas.

You can find everything you need on this page.

If you’re in London or going there, you can download a zip (compressed) file with the full audiowalk in mp3 format, ready to copy to your portable player. You can also find a map in pdf to make it easier to get around.

Most of us, though, will no doubt prefer the 4-part slide-show option, allowing you to watch and listen to the walk at the same time, without getting tired or cold! The whole tour takes about 1 hour and you could also win a Sony Handycam if you find the five special numbers hidden in the tour!

If you’re the kind of person who likes a real mystery, try the online game 221B. You can play as Holmes or Watson, with or without a partner, but you will need an account with Facebook to take part.

    I was in Sherlock Holmes pub, years ago, in London. There were, in the second floor, a simulated flat with chair, books and a plastic Sherlock playing his violin. The second floor was restaurant and I remember it was a nice place for eat.
