A Photographic Tour of Sherlock’s London
To fans of the novels and the BBC series, the locations featured in the Sherlock Holmes stories are almost as iconic as the characters themselves.
The most famous of all is 221B Baker Street, the home of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Although London’s official Holmes museum now bears that number, the address was completely fictional when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published the first “Sherlock” novel in 1887—building numbers on Baker Street did not yet extend that high. The flat shown on the British television show is actually located on the much-quieter North Gower Street, near Euston station.
Next door to Sherlock’s imaginary home is Speedy’s Cafe, a frequent filming spot for actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson). Speedy’s is a real restaurant and a destination site for super-fans—they even have a Sherlock-themed wrap on the menu. Another notable filming location for the television series is St. Bart’s Hospital in Smithfield, the oldest hospital in Europe and backdrop for Sherlock’s final showdown with arch-nemesis Moriarty.
Cerrar el juicio, cerrar los ojos.
Oír el CLAC con el que se rompen los cerrojos.
Y bailar, bailar, bailar, bailar!
Me guías o yo te guío?
Mi cuerpo al tuyo y el tuyo al mío.
Los dos bebiendo
de un mismo aire.
El pulso latiendo
y el muslo aprendiendo a leer en Braille.”

heridas que vienen, sospechas que van
y aquí estoy
pensando en el alma que piensa
y por pensar no es alma,
desarma y sangra.”
