|Sherlock fans where you at?|
The cheapest and fastest way is the tube, tube, tube! The Sherlock Holmes Museum is located conveniently near Baker Street Tube Station, merely a 3 minutes walk away according to Google Map. Once you got off the station you are going to see a giant Sherlock Holmes statue along with a lot of shops, cafes, and restaurants dedicated to the great detective. Hell, they even have Sherlock Holmes tiles inside the Baker Street Station which are really interesting and a great representation of the area.
I lived near Queens Park Station, so I took the Bakerloo Brown Line from Queen's Park Station, it's only 7 stops to Baker Street, Super easy and quick.

Before you go......
|⇧ The interior design and display of the museum.|
Inside the apartment, there is no shortage of Victorian style home decor, from vintage wall clocks, black and white photographs to elaborately designed curtains and candle holders. The entire room just oozes nostalgia and you do feel like you somehow traveled back in the Victorian Era. As someone that loves anything retro, I loved it!
I won't be going into too many details about what the museum has to offer as it would ruin all the fun, I will let these pictures I took inside the museum speak for themselves.
|⇧ Sherlock Holmes' personal possessions|
Even though the admission fee is quite pricey, for a die-hard Sherlock fan, you are absolutely going to have an amazing time there. Especially if you are not from London or the UK in general, you are gonna love seeing the Sherlock Holmes novels come to life. Props for the museum for doing such an amazing job re-creating every detail and description from the books.
Another thing I gotta mention is that there are literally so many people queuing up to go to the museum every day. I arrived at around 11 am and waited for almost an hour to get inside. Due to a number of people visiting, the museum only allows a certain number of people inside once at a time to maintain the quality of the tour.
⇨ You have to check out the Gift Shop!
|Like, literally how adorable are these Holmes teddy bears?|
I saw these really classic, Sherlock-Holmes style deerstalker hats being sold at the gift shop and was so close to buying them, but they were around almost £50 each. As good quality and aesthetic-looking as they were, the price was crazy. Nevertheless, a few days later I actually spotted the exact same ones at Portabello Road Market and they were only around £15 to £19, so I did buy it eventually and was overjoyed I got it at a much cheaper price, and the quality is just as good.
