About This Deal
Choose from a morning or afternoon tour and meet your professional driver-guide at your central London hotel. Then, relax into your comfortable seat inside a classic black cab and set off on your tour. As you travel, listen to your guide talk about Sherlock, the popular BBC TV series that brings Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous 19th-century sleuth to modern-day London.
Gaze out of the windows as you’re chauffeured through some of London’s most recognizable areas — including Kensington, Belgravia, Westminster and Southwark — in search of locations featured in the award-winning series. Snap photos of the residence of Irene Adler and pause by The British Academy, shown onscreen as the infamous Diogenes Club, the tight-lipped gentlemen’s club that may or may not be a front for the British secret service.
Follow the route of Sherlock and John Watson’s cab chase through Soho, and lay on the spot where Sherlock faked his own death in the final episode of the second season. You’ll also visit the exterior of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s home and learn more about the inspiration behind his most famous character.
To whet your appetite for the 2015 Christmas special, visit sites featured in the upcoming episode and hear anecdotes and gossip from your in-the-know guide.
If you take your tour on a weekday, stop in at Speedy’s Cafe, featured in two episodes and located next to 221B Baker Street, the home of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Plus, if you want to pick up a memento of your tour, ask your guide to show you how to buy merchandise and replica props.
After approx. three hours, your tour concludes in central London, leaving you free to continue sightseeing or make your own way back to your hotel.
