Sherlock Holmes is the world’s most popular detective and one of the best-loved literary creations of all time.

Residing in his modest but chaotic rooms at 221B Baker Street with his loyal companion and chronicler, Dr Watson, Holmes used his extraordinary powers of observation and deduction in cases and adventures set amidst the fog and cobbled streets of Victorian London.

But what is less well-known to his legions of devoted readers and fans is that Sherlock Holmes, properly speaking, was born in EDINBURGH.

Join us for The Real Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour around the beautiful city of Edinburgh and let our very own Holmes help you to…

• VISIT the Sherlock Holmes statue and the site of author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birth.

• LEARN about how as a young medical student in Edinburgh, Conan Doyle was to meet the man who would inspire the idea of a completely new type of fictional detective.

• WALK the streets of historic Edinburgh and discover the hidden history and forgotten places where the Holmes legend really began – places unseen by most visitors and fans.
