London boasts countless historical characters but we also have many fictional characters that get
their fair share of attention (think Harry Potter, Paddington, Bridget Jones and Doctor Who).
Arguably the most enduring of them all is Sherlock Holmes.
The iconic detective was created in the Victorian era by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. By the 1990s he featured in over 25,000 stage adaptations, films, television productions and publications. The Guinness World Records lists him as the most portrayed literary human character in film and television history.
Visit Baker Street station to spot his silhouette on the tiles and a 3-metre-tall bronze statue at the exit. Turn the corner to visit the 'Sherlock Holmes museum' - a few doors down from number 221b as the museum owners couldn't secure the exact address 😂

Lots of fun showing the the sights to this gorgeous Tennessee couple today. They chose Totally Tailored for private tours to see the Best of London and Edinburgh to celebrate their honeymoon- postponed by three years!
Today London saw the state opening of Parliament - a 500 year old ceremony which marks the formal start of the parliamentary year. This year Prince Charles carried out the ceremony, reading a speech on behalf of his mother.
Totally Tailored guide Rob was hosting a 'Best of London' tour for the lovely Huttenlocher family (pictured) and managed to get them in prime position to witness this annual event.
Here's what Mom, Julie had to say:
'Oh my goodness….what an absolutely amazing day we had today. I cannot even begin to tell you how much we appreciated everything. Rob was just spectacular. He was full of so much information… my kids cannot stop talking about how much they liked the tour! Thank you!…we are still in awe that we were able to see Charles and William. Olivia was super excited because she got to see the crown in its own car! Super exciting!'...
