SUMMER PROGRAMME STUDENTS (Session 1) - BBC Sherlock Holmes locations walking tour

Please note: This event is for students participating in the 2017 Undergraduate Summer School Programmes only.

We invite Summer School students to join us on this special extended walking tour (3 hours).

Sherlock Holmes - detective extraordinaire – has been a popular character since he came into existence in 1887. Created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he featured in a series of 60 stories set in the Edwardian and Victorian periods, published between 1887 and 1927. Sherlock Holmes is famous for his extra-keen powers of observation and deduction which he uses to solve perplexing crimes and mysteries.

In this tour we retrace the steps of Sherlock and Watson as they uncover hidden truths. Our tour partners London Walks describe the tour as follows:

BBC Sherlock locations

A new generation of fans have come to the Holmes stories through this series.  The London locations are spread out over a wide area, but a couple of bus or tube journeys gets us to many of them, including St Bartholomew’s Hospital and the Old Bailey (The Reichenbach Fall), the ‘Shad Sanderson’ office featured in The Blind Banker, bridge and river locations from The Great Game and A Scandal in Belgravia, the meeting-place of Watson and Stamford (both locations: from A Study in Pink and the original pilot episode), and many others, which we’ll be adding to as the series continues.  Including, of course, ‘221b’ and Speedy’s Café.

So, there you have it - join us and relive the adventures of this very famous Londoner.
