This place was everything I expected it to be, matched the descriptions in the books and looked like the scenes from the old movies. The 'actors' that were there were very friendly and interactive. My wife took a photo of me wearing Sherlock's hat and...More

If you are a fan of Sherlock then you will love this museum. It's like stepping back in time. The mannequins in some of the rooms are creepy so might be a tad scary if you have small children with you. The gift shop next...More

Loved going to this little attraction, im a fan of all things like this. Its very small and can be crowded, but this didnt bother me. The gift store next door was like a treasure chest of gifts and nick-nacks.

The cue was a long one and I have to pay for the ticket. Too bad I didn't have enough time to get in the museum itself, but the souvenirs shop was also great to visit! Especially if you're a Sherlock Holmes fan! ;)

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

If you want to visit on a specific date better check their opening hours as these may vary. I would say, go about one hour before closing time as it will give you plenty of time to enjoy the museum and take all the pictures... More

We did not have children with use under 5 so, unfortunately I cannot answer your question. There would be little for them to enjoy, and in fact the wax figures of the characters may be a bit scary for little ones.

I believe you are referring to luggage and not a small backpack type. If that is the case, no, there is not anywhere to leave it and in fact, going into 221B for the exhibits is up some very small, steep stairs and it would... More
