Mr. Sherlock Holmes and his companion John H. Watson, M.D., spent many years at this address in London, England, under the rent of Mrs. Hudson (his landlady). Characters of every type have frequented the rooms of this place, calling on Mr. Holmes for help and assistance on with mysteries only the finest criminal detective could unravel.
Sherlock Holmes, the amateur detective, chemist, violin player, boxer, and swordsman (amongst other talents), first appeared in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet in the Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887.

|June Wyndham-Davies has been deeply involved in the Sherlock Holmes'
Granada TV show and producer of several of its series. She was with Norma
West in Portmeirion in August 1996 for the Six-of-One convention. Helen
Cohen and Baptiste Marcel met and interviewed
her. Here are a few photographs taken at the time with Portmeirion in the
Norma West played in one of the Sherlock Holmes episode (The Master Blackmailer), but the reason for which she attended the Six-of-One convention was because she played one of the leading roles in the episode Danse of the Dead from the famous TV series The Prisoner.
Norma West and June Wyndham-Davies are in the Internet Movie Database.

In London there is a wonderful place for Sherlock Holmes fans, a pub called The Sherlock Holmes (which used to have it own web page at http://www.users.dircon.co.uk/~sherlock/index.htm). The two rooms of the bar are decorated with interesting Sherlock Holmes memorabilia such as still photographs from the various movies, photographs of real people from the Conan Doyle era, drawings inspired by the stories and many artifacts that would appear to have come directly from 221B Baker Street. On the second floor is the cabinet of Sherlock Holmes containing objects every fan will recognise. Souvenirs such as mugs, plates, glasses etc. decorated with a Sherlock Holmes drawing are available for fans to purchase.
Find this at:
The Sherlock Holmes 10-11 Northumberland Street London WC2 5DA 0171 930-2644.
I emphasize the fact that I did not receive any payment of any kind for this little presentation. I just enjoyed the place very much when I was in London.
