Tour Outline: 

This is the most complete Sherlock Holmes tour in London! Combining our love of the Great Detective with our brand new E-Scooters has created a crime-solving experience like no other! 

This tour will take you on an in-depth exploration of everything Sherlock Holmes. It will include filming locations, used in various film and television adaptations. We will also include real-life inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Throughout the tour, we will be investigating and discussing all of the most beloved characters including Dr. Watson, Irene Adler, Mycroft Holmes and the villainous Moriarty. 

Our E-Scooters mean we can cover more distance than your traditional walking tour. As a result, we are the only tour that will take you from Trafalgar Square to the doorstep of 221B Baker Street! 

Your expert guide will regale you with stories, trivia and secrets from the world of Sherlock Holmes. This is the perfect experience for any Sherlock fan! So grab your magnifying glass and join us today!

The tour will begin at Embankment Underground Station. Like all of our tours, we will start with an E-Scooter safety tutorial and practice ride. Whether you have used an E-Scooter before, or this will be your first time, our experienced guides will make you feel safe and comfortable! 

When everyone is ready, we will travel to The Sherlock Holmes Pub and Trafalgar Square. This tour will be packed full of anecdotes, references, easter eggs and everything in between. It will feature all the major stories such as Hounds of the Baskerville, Study in Scarlet, Scandal in Bohemia and The Final Problem. So if you’re a fan of the original books this tour is perfect for you. 

Or maybe you are a bigger fan of Sherlock on the big (or little) screen? Not a problem! As we scoot down Pall Mall and explore St. James’s we will see filming locations from the much loved BBC’s Sherlock and the internationally acclaimed Sherlock Holmes, feature Robert Downey Jr. Perhaps, you remember Sherlock Holmes before CGI? We will also be taking a look at Sherlock throughout history, discussing classic actors and films over his 100+ years on television.

Next, we will scoot north. Travelling through the luxurious neighbourhoods of Mayfair and Marylebone stopping off at more secretive Sherlock locations as we go. This tour has everything. Amazing Sherlock-themed stories, a fun and exciting E-Scooter experience and some of the most beautiful locations London has to offer. 

Finally, we will come to the most famous address in the world: 221B Baker Street. We will conclude the tour outside the front entrance. From here, you are free to continue using your E-Scooter. Perhaps continue scooting around the area, or even explore the nearby Regent’s Park. Or, if you wish to continue your Sherlock-themed experience you could enter the Sherlock Holmes Museum the most complete collection of Sherlock memorabilia in the whole world! 

This tour is perfect for any Sherlock super-fan or wannabe Watson!
