Sherlock and London at the Museum of London

Jeremy-Brett-as-Sherlock-Holmes-sherlock-holmes-14711347-1161-1649A new exhibition is to open at the Museum of London in 2014, interestingly it looks at the  relationship between Sherlock Holmes and London.

London has always been a source of fascination for myself and the greatest consulting detective. Indeed in the ‘The Red-Headed League’ Holmes remarks to Watson, ”It is a hobby of mine to have an exact knowledge of London.”

The Director of the Museum of London Sharon Ament said: “We all think we know Sherlock Holmes, but do we really? “The lens through which the Museum of London will examine the inimitable detective will reveal more about London than you might guess, but then you’d expect nothing less.”

The museum says it will “look beyond the familiar deerstalker, pipe and cape” in search of the “real, complex and multi-faceted” Sherlock Holmes and will “mirror the way he used his own remarkable observational powers and analytical mind to reveal the truth”.

Sound interesting…the game is afoot in 2014
