Discover Sherlock Holme's London with a passionate

Guided by John D.

About this activity
Join a real Sherlockian as we step back in time to London of 1895, a time of Hansom cabs rattling along cobbled streets, foggy lanes and gas-lit alleys. We visit about 40 sites that were either Holmes and Watson's favourite i.e. restaurants, Turkish baths etc or were mentioned in their adventures. We discuss the famous dinner at a hotel that resulted in the writing of "The Sign of Four" which was the second Holmes story and we visit the building that housed the "Strand Magazine" which published many of the stories. (NB this walk is based on the original stories, films and tv series prior to 2009)

I was born in London, lived and worked in central London all of my life, I am a recently retired quantity surveyor after working many years for a large consultant company. I am passionate about London's history and started giving historical guided walks for walk colleagues several years ago, enjoying doing the research as much as the walks. I love meeting people and sharing some of London's hidden alleyways and stories.

Reviews about John D.

November 2016
London Historic Pubs with an historian
Our tour with John was absolutely amazing. John was so knowledgeable and took us to pubs we are certain that we would never have found on our own, let alone know all the background on it too. John was friendly and just lovely to get to know as we made our way through interesting alley ways and the streets of London. It was our first day in London and we couldn't imagine a better way to start off our 5 day visit.

John is very enthusiastic and I had a great walk with him in the central London. You never get to know such details just by walking yourself

London Historic Pubs with an historian
We just loved the tour. John took us to amazing places that as a foreigner, we would never find. All the details and the history behind the pubs was just great. My son is 17yo but even though (at some pubs he was not allowed to go inside) he loved the tour. He's eager to repeat the tour with his friends next year!
