Baker Street Tours

Baker Street
One of Central London’s major thoroughfares, bustling Baker Street is best known for its association with one Sherlock Holmes. According to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s books, the fictional detective resided at number 221B. Today, the Sherlock Holmes Museum commemorates the area’s literary legacy and draws crowds throughout the year.

The Basics
Beyond its famed fictional resident and his dedicated museum, Baker Street offers a mix of historical highlights, destination-worthy restaurants, and classic Georgian architecture. The road, which links Regent’s Park at the north with the teeming Oxford Street shopping area to the south, was created in the 18th century and attracted the well-to-do. Today, it’s particularly popular among tourists. Baker Street is just steps from in-demand destinations the likes of Madame Tussaud’s and Selfridge’s.

Baker Street can be discovered on various Central London guided itineraries, from Sherlock Holmes-themed excursions to tours via Tube. Given its central location, it’s also easily accessible for independent travelers.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Sherlock fans can spy a statue of the detective right out front of Baker Street Station, where Baker Street meets Marylebone Road.
  • Baker Street Station, which dates to 1863, is one of the oldest stations on the London Underground network.
  • In addition to Sherlock Holmes, Baker Street has been home to high-profile individuals ranging from Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger to Dusty Springfield.

How to Get There
To access the northern edge of Baker Street, take Bakerloo, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, or Jubilee lines to Baker Street Station. To access its southern edge, take the Central line to Marble Arch, or take the Central line or Jubilee line to Bond Street. Baker Street is served by multiple bus lines, including the 2, 13, 18, 27, 30, 74, 113, 139, 189, 205, 274, and 453. It can also be reached by taxi, on foot, or by bicycle.

When to Get There
Baker Street is best known for its museums, tourist attractions, and restaurants, so it’s best to visit during normal opening hours to take advantage of the area’s major draws.

Nearby Highlights
Baker Street is both a destination in its own right and valued for its proximity to other top London sights. In addition to Oxford Street and Regent’s Park, the thoroughfare is just steps from the wax sculptures at Madame Tussaud’s, art at the Wallace Collection, books and browsing at independent Daunt Books, and more.
