The area
Address
Neighborhood: Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
How to get there

I would love to rate this tourist attraction but sadly we didn’t get past the gift shop… my daughter has a medical exemption card for mask-wearing but a member of staff (a tall man with a scraggly grey beard) wouldn’t even let her pass go without a mask on! Total discrimination, no customer service and basically out of order. We will not be returning. It is now clear perhaps why there were so few customers… would not recommend.

I visited the store in to buy my younger sister a gift as she's a huge sherlock fan and is getting married in a few weeks, lovely little store, the man on entering the store is very friendly but thats where it ended. I believe the staff could seriously do with a course on customer relations. The lady serving me (and I'm using that title loosely) was obnoxious. I have never been spoken to in the manner in which she spoke to me. I was that gobsmacked I didn't have the wherewithal to answer her. Absolutely shocking manner towards a customer.Never again, spending hard earned money to be spoken to like something she scraped off her shoe.

We visited at 4pm on a Monday. Nearly all the tables were full, but I never had to wait at the bar. We ordered two lots of food and both arrived within ten minutes of ordering. We only had loaded chips and Houma is fries, but they were really good. They had a good selection of draft craft beers too.
Toilets were clean and spacious. A great place to stop of refuel. Right next door to Baker Street station exit, within a couple of minutes walk of Tussaud’s.

Great for avid Sherlock fans, a fun visit and nice roam but London has so much to offer, this is not on my top 20 list, ok to spend an hour or so.

Baker Street was my absolute favorite part of London. There's a statue of the consulting detective as soon as you get off the tube. The tube station itself is decorated with tiles imprinted with Holmes's silhouette and the tiles form his silhouette as well. I didn't pay to get in the Sherlock Holmes museum but I did go in the gift shop and it was very cool. The shop wasn't filled with typical junk-type gifts; they had pipes and deerstalkers, nice little key fobs, books, and all sorts of things. The shop itself really felt like 221b Baker Street. There were also cafes just across the street with Holmes paintings on the walls. The whole place was just excellent and I'm already looking forward to going back.

貝克街站 (Baker Street Station) 是倫敦第1收費區並設有5條路線服務。於1863年啟用,是全世界第一條地下鐵路
.
Baker Street Station, which is the world's first underground railway and opened in 1863, is in Zone 1 and is served by five lines.
.
貝克街 (Baker Street)是真實存在於倫敦的街道。福爾摩中所的寓所及偵探事務所地址: 貝克街221號B,在小說連載的時候尚是個不存在的虛構地址,直到1930年才成為可用地址 。

I have been getting my nails done here for 4 years. The standards have slipped drastically. The manager is a woman called Lisa and she has appalling customer service and awful manners. I have not only witnessed her being rude to clients but sadly was at the mercy of her nail clippers myself. She cut my skin by mistake and also managed to file my cuticles down with the electric file... it was painful. She point blank refused to apologise and then went in to ridicule me in front of other customers . It was beyond shocking and I am now considering legal action against them. The owners sadly allow this woman to remain the manager which from a business sense is a huge mistake as she is so incredibly rude. Please note when they do gel nails here, they do not put the colour all the way to the perimeter of the nail, thy leave a gap so that your return back to the shop will be within a week as oppose to two weeks. Save your money and your sanity by going somewhere else in Baker Street to have your nails done!

Just to let you know, this is a very small museum. If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan than it is definitely worth going to. You can easily do the self tour in 30 minutes. The tickets are sold in the gift shop.

It's the residence of Sherlock holmes. There is a museum but the fan-shop itself was a great place to visit.. with a downstairs loo/bathroom reflecting the spy's era.

Well, this was in our must do list while we visited London as we are big fans of Sherlock Holms, the greatest detective ever lived.

Just a quick stroll from Baker Street tube station (3 minutes’ walk), we saw a friendly police constable standing at the door of this Georgian terrace. Stepping into the narrow entrance , corridor, walking up the stairs, we got to see the famous study with almost all original furniture and the settings, very loyal to the book; Also an exhibition of life size waxworks as well as Holmes memorabilia. Costumes are available so we dressed up as Holmes and Doctor Watson, I swear the pipe of Holms’ was still warm!

You can find all sorts of Sherlock Holmes stuff in the little souvenir shop/Museum at the ground floor in which I bought a couple of small frames of sketch works of London’s iconic sites that I haven’t seen elsewhere.

Before visiting 221B Baker st, we went to see Madame Tussauds, which is very close by. This is a lovely suburb with lovely shops, pubs to wander around, a true experience for foreigners like us.
