Exploring Sherlock Holmes Museum in London

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, one of Britain’s most popular authors, created Sherlock Holmes, a fictional “consulting detective” recognized for his incredible proficiency in forensic science, observation, deduction, and logical reasoning. The gifted investigator uses these amazing skills to investigate cases for Scotland Yard and other clients. Dr. Watson, Holmes’ biographer and friend, narrates Holmes’ investigations. 

According to the stories, Holmes lives at 221b Baker St. in London.
The stories are so popular that many people see Holmes as a British cultural icon. Holmes’ character is said to have had a profound influence in popular culture and mystery writing.

Sherlock Holmes made his first appearance in print in 1887. Today, stories about him continue to be adapted into radio and stage plays, movies, films made for television, and video games.

The Sherlock Holmes Museum now stands at 221b Baker Street – a museum dedicated to portraying how the famous detective lived during his time. The interior of the building is maintained to reflect what you read in Conan Doyle’s stories.

The house is considered to be of particular historical and architectural interest. It has been renovated to look like a Victorian home.

The Sherlock Holmes Museum is a short 5-minute walk from the Baker Street Station. It is quite accessible from any of the holiday apartments London.

Spending the Day at Covent Garden and Soho

Just when you thought you already know London’s best tourist spots by heart, comes uptwo places that are not yet on your radar: Soho and Covent Garden.

Over the past few years, Covent Garden in West End London has fully developed into a vibrant, world-class tourist destination that not too many people, especially non-locals, know of. It now offers an eclectic mix of shopping, entertainment, and good food, while retaining its historical and cultural character – just like the most of London.

Soho, on the other hand, has had a more notorious history – that of being a base for sex industry during the 20th century.

A Whole Day's Worth: Places to Visit

Marylebone, London as the Perfect Holiday Destination

Christmas is just around the corner, and many people are starting to plan their holiday getaway. Indeed, it isn’t too early to prepare for this time of the year, especially if your vacation destination is to one of the world’s loveliest cities – London.

London is brimming with tourist spots that also reflect its rich heritage and culture, and with innumerable must-see places in it, you might have to narrow down your choices to only a few.

Marylebone – a Story in Itself

Marylebone, pronounced as Marly-bone, is an inner-city region of Central London known for its attractive buildings that used to be inhabited by famous personalities like Charles Dickens, Jimi Hendrix, and The Beatles. Its beautiful townhouses reflected the Georgian and Edwardian eras and architecture.

Certainly quieter than shoppers’ favorite and always bustling Oxford Street, and classier than the classic film setting of Notting Hill, Marylebone exudes an enigmatic charm of its own. Stroll casually along its elegant streets, or shop to your heart's content in its array of cool and unique stores. Wine and dine in some of the place's luxurious restaurants, and get to stay at the best holiday apartments London, England. Yes, you can do all these in one of Central London's nattiest neighborhoods.

Marylebone's Highlights

Among the must-see places in Marylebone are the Wallace Collection of French furniture and paintings and 221B Baker Street - the latter actually being the address of Conan Doyle's fictional sleuth or, more commonly, the Sherlock Holmes Museum.

Madame Tussauds, a popular London wax museum that houses prominent figures in history and from the present time, is also something that you wouldn't want to miss during your Marylebone trip. Here, you can rub elbows with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, and yes, even with The Queen herself.

Aside from the above tourist attractions, Marylebone has also some of the most unique and independent stores. Button Queen, The Collaborative Store, Gallery 1930, and the well-loved bookshop, Daunt Books, are among the people's favorites.

Marylebone - Living the Life

Are you hungry from walking around all day? Marylebone offers the most sumptuous food at the finest restaurants, too. Have your dinner at Italian-inspired Briciole or from the renowned Chiltern Firehouse, and then get some dessert from Pierre Marcolini to give your gastronomic encounter a heavenly conclusion.

Finally, after a whole day of walking and shopping (or window-shopping) and dining and what have you, it's time settle down. Spend the rest of the night in a chic aparthotel - an apartment that is run like a hotel but with furnishings like that in your home and which is more affordable with better amenities. One such example is the Presidential Apartments Marylebone at the very heart of Central London.

This coming holiday season, visit Marylebone in London, England, and experience living the high life in one of the city's most attractive destinations.

The Student Budget: Living in London

Crossing over from high school to college is the most monumental event in a student’s life. It is the the end of prelude and the beginning of chapter one. A student is no longer learning from the four corners of a classroom, but also becoming a student of life. He/she now begins to trust his own judgment and makes his own call. Some easily learn the ways, but some freshers still need the map. That is perfectly normal and fine. Below is a fresher’s starter kit in knowing how to work around the student’s budget in London:

The food
A good student always allots his funds first to his/her consumption. This is because a healthy student produces good grades and a better stamina for the exam week. Choices from buying your own groceries and making a meal from raw ingredients to finding and maintaining your “budget restaurant” should be initially considered. Tesco and Sainsbury’s are two of the biggest chain of supermarket in London. It is believed that every £1 from every £10 spent in London is spent in Tesco while ‘Sainsbury’s Range’ houses cheaper than usual branded products. For those who choose to eat at a restaurant, most recommended student budget meal can be found at Baiwei in Chinatown, Bi Bim Bap in Soho, or City Caphe in Mansion House. Most university student’s suggest that freshers take a walk at Chinatown for more choices.

The transportation
Choices of transportation in Central London include buses, trains, undertown tube transport services and taxi cabs. London has also good roads for those who choose to ride a bike to school. The choices are yours. A single bus fare costs £1.50 for adults. Payment for bus fare is done by using a Visitor Oyster card, an Oyster card, a Travelcard or with a contactless payment card.These mode of payment could also be used if you choose to ride on a Tube, DLR, London Overground, Tfl Rail and most National Rail services.

The accommodation
Apartments are the most sought choice in choosing your accommodation. Because of some students prefer to have roommates, they choose an apartment with bigger space and more facilities even when they cost more. But for some, they can also choose to live alone in their apartment to study better and focus more. Presidential Apartments Marylebone is a service apartment good for 2-4 people and with a fully equipped Kitchen that has ovens, microwaves, fridge freezers, andwasher dryers. Presidential Marylebone Serviced Apartments are located in the very heart of Central London with easy access to the airport, train stations, bus and underground tube transport services.
