||Visitors often ask whether Sherlock Holmes and Dr
Watson really lived in the house, although no official records of the lodgers who lived
here in Victorian times exist. Local authority records do state that the house was
registered as a lodging house between 1860-1934, and that the maids who worked in it were
related to a "Mr Holmes". A Doctor Watson also lived next door in the
1890's, as an artificial teeth manufacturer.
The published stories describe the house in all its details as well as the daily life of Mr Holmes and Doctor Watson, which visitors can explore for themselves by visiting the Museum
