The Street is OK, nothing special from any other large street. The Sherlock Holmes museum is lovely but expensive. The Baker street station is great(especially the ols part).

Baker Street the home of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes comes right up to the Marylebone Road and very close to Regents Park in London. There is an underground station right on Baker Street and is an easy walk to Regents Park.

I loved that when I came out of the tube station I was in Sherlock land. The house and Museum are right around the corner. The feel of the area is great. Fun shops too.

If you want to get a good old foggy London feeling my suggestion is you go around Baker street. At least in my case I felt the old London feeling in and around baker street

Running from Portman Square in the south to Regents Park in the north, Baker Street is very much worth a visit if you are new to London. There are some very decent restaurants (Galvin and Royal China to name but two) plus some well known...More
