London – Sherlock Holmes 3

The fictional Sherlock Holmes lived at the fictional address of 221B Baker Street. When the Sherlock Holmes stories were first published, street numbers in Baker Street did not go as high as 221. Now, the Sherlock Holmes Museum is in a townhouse very similar to the 221B described in the stories, but is actually located at 239 Baker Street. However, in March 1990, the Westminster City Council reassigned the museum’s street number to be 221B.
