London – Sherlock Holmes 2

Visitors to the Sherlock Holmes Museum in Baker St, should also look out for all the connections to the famous detective around the Baker St tube station. This is one of the oldest Underground stations, opening in 1863 as part of the Metropolitan Railway, which was the world’s first underground railway. Now the station is one of the largest and busiest in London with five lines passing through it and with ten platforms.

Tiles with a Sherlock Holmes motif decorate the walls of the station and there is a bronze statue of Holmes at the Marylebone Road exit.
