THE NEW FINDING SHERLOCK'S LONDON: Travel Guide to Over 300 Sherlock Holmes Sites in London
21 Jan 2009
London is the world's most popular destination for international visitors. Many want to see the sites mentioned in the Sherlock Holmes adventures. In their mind's eye, they still see the sinister, fog-bound city that was the heart of the Empire.
Today, time, the Blitz, and urban development have taken their toll, but much of what Sherlock "saw", is still there. Conan Doyle was unusually precise in his London addresses and locations, only occasionally disguising a site. To help find Sherlock's London, Thomas Bruce Wheeler, a London expert, has identified over three hundred sites, placed them in their adventure context, and cross-referenced them by their nearest London Underground Station.
The New Finding Sherlock's London is a guidebook for Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts. To get the most out of it, buy a pocket magnifying glass before leaving home. After arriving in London, purchase a modern street guide (for which you will need the magnifying glass), and a Travel Pass for unlimited travel on London's Underground. Then, enjoy-the game is afoot!
