<h1>The Sherlock Holmes Museum</h1>
<p>
	So I went to London to visit the <a href="http://sherlock-holmes.co.uk/" rel="external">Sherlock Holmes
	Museum</a>, however you’ll have to forgive the quality of my photos as the weather was not fantastic and without
	HDR my basic phone camera couldn’t cope, especially indoors.
</p><p>
	The London Underground is always interesting. Each station has its own design and style.

<blockquote>
	<p>
		An anomaly which often struck me in the character of my friend Sherlock Holmes was that, although in his
		methods of thought he was the neatest and most methodical of mankind, and although also he affected a
		certain quiet primness of dress, he was none the less in his personal habits one of the most untidy men
		that ever drove a fellow-lodger to distraction. Not that I am in the least conventional in that respect
		myself. The rough-and-tumble work in Afghanistan, coming on the top of a natural Bohemianism of
		disposition, has made me rather more lax than befits a medical man. But with me there is a limit, and when
		I find a man who keeps his cigars in the coal-scuttle, his tobacco in the toe end of a Persian slipper, and
		his unanswered correspondence transfixed by a jack-knife into the very centre of his wooden mantelpiece,
		then I begin to give myself virtuous airs. I have always held, too, that pistol practice should be
		distinctly an open-air pastime; and when Holmes, in one of his queer humors, would sit in an arm-chair with
		his hair-trigger and a hundred Boxer cartridges, and proceed to adorn the opposite wall with a patriotic V.
		R. done in bullet-pocks, I felt strongly that neither the atmosphere nor the appearance of our room was
		improved by it.

	Asides the sitting room there is Sherlock Holmes’ bedroom, of which none of my photos survived, it being too dark
	for my camera. Upstairs there are more rooms with various exhibits of common 19<sup>th</sup> century items and props
	from various Sherlock Holmes cases.

<p>
	Downstairs there is a gift shop which is a bit touristy, but that’s to be expected given the number of different
	cultures that pass through daily. All in all, it wouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes to rush around, but it’s
	advised to take your time and take lots of photographs (preferably with a decent camera, unlike me).
</p><p>
	If you have not read the Sherlock Holmes stories before I highly recommend them and they can be read for free (as
	they are in public domain), <a href="http://christoph-ender.de/Sherlock_Holmes/" rel="external">here</a>.
