London celebrates its most famous detective: Sherlock Holmes
16th October 2014

Magnifying glass, deerstalker hat and pipe. It doesn't take a detective to link those clues to Sherlock Holmes. 

Tomorrow a new exhibition opens and will celebrate London's most famous detective. 

Away from Baker Street, in the heart of London's Barbican, 'Sherlock Holmes: The Man Who Never Lived and Will Never Die', will be at the Museum of London until April 2015. 

It charts Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional character from his creation in Victorian London, through various adaptations in film, television and theatre right through to the modern day.
