The Man Who Never Lived And Will Never Die

What makes the character of Sherlock Holmes one of such enduring fascination? Elementary, my dear Watson. His abductive reasoning, keen eye for detail, distinctive style of fashion, and eccentric personality can't fail to capture readers' imagination. He my be righteous, but he also had a sinister side to him as well; he lacked a certain amount of social skills, making him abrupt and arrogant. Sherlock Holmes is a fully developed character; he has a brilliant mind, but a poor bedside manner - just the kind of person we all love to read about, but would never want to meet.

But at the Museum of London you now have the chance to get as up close and personal with the most famous detective of all time. In the first major Sherlock Holmes exhibition since 1951, you will be transported back to Victorian London, as the museum recreates the atmosphere of Sir Conan Doyle's stories. Explore the world of Sherlock Holmes through early film, photography, paintings and original artefacts. There will be all sorts of talks, workshops, and activities to enjoy. These include bohemian life drawing, a deductive cocktail-making, Bartitsu self-defence, a memory maze, and a walking tour of London, visiting key sites, such as Baker Street.

Entry to the exhibit is 12 for adults or 10 concessions, and is open until the 12 April 2015.
