"...those clever computer-type people have put together an easy iPhone application which means you can build your own Holmes tour." - Yorkshire Evening Post

"If you’re a fan of Sherlock Holmes – and not just the new movie – this handy little iPhone app is your guide to everything Sherlock in London." -

This Sherlock Holmes Guide To London includes more than 60 locations connected to the great detective. Use it as a walking tour or simply browse the information as a fact-packed guide to houses, hotels, railway stations, pubs, plaques and statues. The app includes more than 100 photographs and easy-to-use mapping to transport you back to a time when London was a city of fog, hansom cabs and a network of crime to stimulate the mind of the world’s most famous consulting detective.

The first 40 locations from Baker Street to Leicester Square can be used as a four mile walk or split up as the user wishes. A second set of extra locations further afield are conveniently grouped near to London’s tube stations.
