Overview

The Mapped London of Sherlock Holmes: Explore Sherlock Holmes's London from your home computer, with an Interactive map, and 400 computer accessed street view photos by Thomas Bruce Wheeler

Holmes and Watson traveled all over Greater London. Time, the Blitz, and urban redevelopment have taken their toll, but many of the places Sherlock "knew" are still there. Conan Doyle was unusually precise in his London locations, only occasionally disguising a site. However, many times he gave enough clues to help us locate these places. The task of writing this book was further complicated by street name changes and renumbering. However, with humble detective skills, and the help of those who have researched the Canon before me, I was able to identify 400 sites. In addition to including an interactive Google map of these places, this book lists these sites in adventure context, with hyperlinked GPS addresses.
