Kid's Book Reviews Sherlock Holmes' London

london of sherlock holmes

Tower of London

If you are travelling to London on holiday or business and are a fan of Sherlock Holmes, try to find time to visit some of the places mentioned in the stories.

Luckily for us a book illustrated with photographs, entitled "The Queens London," was published by Cassell and Company in 1897 to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria. It gives a contemporary view of many London landmarks, so we are able to see them  as they appeared at the time Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were solving their cases.

Although some of the buildings have gone many can still be seen today.
