A NEW MYSTERY UNFOLDS IN LONDON!

New Statue of Sherlock Holmes in London

After more than 100 years a statue commemorating the world famous detective Sherlock Holmes has at last been erected  outside Baker Street underground station in central London.

Standing over 9' high, the statue of Baker Street's most famous resident bears some resemblance to the real Sherlock Holmes, and many Holmes enthusiasts are delighted.

The landmark statue is destined to become a major tourist attraction in its own right and will compliment the Sherlock Holmes Museum's services to London's overseas tourists - many of whom come to London especially to see the lodging rooms of Sherlock Holmes at 221b Baker Street.

The Museum's own living 'Sherlock Holmes' will still greet visitors to Baker Street as they emerge from   Baker StreetUnderground Station and visitors will therefore still be able to receive Sherlock Holmes's famous business card which the Museum has been distributing to tourists for the last decade.

The statue is expected to draw many new overseas tourists to London, as over 95% of visitors to London are familiar with the exploits of the great detective and many make their way to Baker Street to see his lodgings. Sherlock Holmes has for over a century been widely regarded as a British Institution and an important part of England's literary heritage.
