"it is a hobby of mine to have an exact knowledge of London" [REDH] 

Recently, a reader contacted us for recommendations for incorporating Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle into a trip to London. It's been a few years since our last trip there, but we are aware of a number of great resources:

These are but a smattering of books, tours, and locations. Perhaps some more well-informed traveling Sherlockian could use the Comments section below to add your own suggestions.

Visitors to London may be interested in Detective Walks (info@detectivewalks.co.uk).

We offer a number of different routes in different areas of London arranged to suit the visitor rather than on set dates.

"Finding Sherlock's London" is an excellent reference tool for planning your own Sherlockian tour of the city. The best descriptive guidebook by far is Arthur M Alexander's 'Hot on the Scent' (Calabash Press): it's comprehensive, fully researched, accurate and very well written.

I am adding a marker using google maps at the locations used in each Sherlock Holmes story.
