Westminster Tour was great!
Westminster Tour was definitely the highlight of the experience. Not so sure about the Sherlock museum at the end... Great guide around Westminster though! Would definitely recommend for families with young teens!

Sherlock Holmes Old London - Very Small Group Walking Tour
This was a great tour by a very knowledgeable guide. Richard went above and beyond his duties of the Sherlock information and even included other information along the way of the tour. I was super excited to do this tour after reading all of the Sherlock Holmes stories and this tour was a great denouement to that experience. I only wish I had watched the BBC series to ensure I could fully appreciate some of the sites.

Sherlock Holmes Old London - Very Small Group Walking Tour
We had a VERY small group as it was just the two of us and Richard. He was extremely knowledgeable - not just about Sherlock Holmes and the time flew by as we walked about London. I cannot recommend strongly enough; it was fantastic!

Sherlock Holmes Private Guided Tour - BBC Series & Traditional Locations
I’m a teen who loves Sherlock Holmes especially the hit B.B.C. show. The guide (I think his name was Richard) was extremely friendly and knew things that even I (a pretty big fan) didn’t know! The Tour was exactly as described, was about three and a half hours and ended at the Sherlock Holmes Museum!

A Tour of the Sherlock Holmes House

Visitors are welcomed to the house by esteemed landlady Mrs. Hudson before embarking on a journey into the world of detective Sherlock Holmes. You’ll see Holmes’ characteristic Victorian-style study on the first floor overlooking Baker Street, as well as Watson’s bedroom on the second floor. The “lumber room” is full of lodgers’ suitcases, and Holmes’ attic bedroom appears in typical disarray. Look out for Holmes’ favorite armchair by the fire, his treasured calabash pipe, his array of wacky disguises, and his collection of secret notebooks and papers scattered around the house.
