Sherlock Holmes is a character in the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sherlock Holmes lived at 221b Baker Street from 1881-1904 and there is a blue plaque commemorating this above the Sherlock Holmes Museum.
Interest in Sherlock Holmes has recently increased with the recent release of the movie, Sherlock Holmes, directed by Guy Ritchie.
Sherlock Holmes was a quirky detective who comes to large conclusions from the smalls details. He has a right-hand man, Dr John H Watson, who assists the detective on his search for the answer to the puzzle.
Why not read the books with your family and take a visit to the museum to tie it all together.
