Baker Street

Baker Street
  • West End Loop

Baker Street in London is most famous for its links to the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, who was said to live at number 221b. This address used by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could refer to a building located to the north of Baker Street, close to Regent’s Park. The street, which is much narrower than it is portrayed in several Sherlock Holmes films, is an important artery carrying traffic between north and south London and is likely just as congested today as it was in the times of Holmes.
