Following in the Footsteps of Sherlock Holmes


How would you like to take a walk around London, tracing the fictitious history of the great detective Sherlock Holmes?

Sorry, I’m not offering a free trip to the UK or to the big city itself, but if you’re lucky enough to be in London, I’ll give you a tip on where to find a fantastic free self-guided tour. Or, if like me you’re far, far away (or even just far away), you won’t be left out – there’s a fantastic slideshow tour for armchair travelers.

The Guardian and SoundMap are celebrating the opening of the new Sherlock Holmes movie with a special downloadable audio walk.

First, you may wish to download the map as a reference.  If  you’re able to physically do the London walk,  you can download the full tour and transfer it over to an MP3 player.

If  you’re doing the armchair tour as I will be, I recommend brewing a pot of tea, loading a plate with scones or Jammie Dodgers (Peek Freans Fruit Creme will do) and sitting back and watching the slideshow tour.  You could even end off the event by making something from Dining with Sherlock Holmes: A Baker Street Cookbook.

Ahh to be in London in December! :)
