A Rainy Day in London Town…

I was in Baker Street to get my hair cut, but here's the queue for the Sherlock Holmes Museum in Baker Street, at about three o'clock this afternoon... ;)

    Goodness me ~ you have been a busy boy today!!
    I have been through Camden town a few times and may I say that it looks much prettier when it is lit up! 😉
    I didn’t realise there was a Sherlock Holmes museum in Baker Street! 🙂 Obviously a very popular place to visit!

  2. Haha…the plan was actually to get my hair cut and then have a wander through Regent’s Park and up to Primrose Hill to take the day’s pictures there, but the persistent rainfall put paid to that idea, so I opted for Camden Town instead. Camden Town is a bit of a tourist trap in some ways, but it’s popular with quite a lot of Londoners too. I don’t go there much nowadays, but I used to more when I lived at Baker Street in the first half of the 1990s. The Sherlock Holmes Museum isn’t always that busy, and the queue seemed abnormally long this afternoon. There’s also a statue of Sherlock Holmes outside Baker Street station now, which wasn’t there when I was living there, but again, it is quite popular with tourists and their cameras ;)…

  3. So interesting! I love Sherlock Holmes, particularly the latest versions with Robert Downey Jr. and with Benedict Cumberbatch. Though, I did not know that there is a Sherlock Holmes Museum. I learned something new.

    Only 20 more hours to go. You almost did it, yizhivika! Congrats! And a big Thank You!

  4. Yes, almost there now, andelieya, although the day counter on this blog is slightly awry, and it’s actually 24 hours longer than it shows ;). I’m a fan of Sherlock Holmes stories and films too, and I have several DVDs with the various cinematic incarnations of Holmes and Watson over the years… :).

  5. Okay thanks, andelieya; I visit YouTube quite often, so I’ll see what’s available on there :).

  6. I lived in London for a time – and I am not typically fond of cities, but how I do miss the neighborhoods, and the Tube! Thank you for sharing.

  7. And thank you for stopping by, and commenting, bussokuseki :). To use an English expression, London’s ‘not everyone’s cup of tea’, but I’ve lived here for thirty years now, and I’ve never regretted moving here for a second ;). Best wishes to you in New England :).
