The Sherlock Holmes International Society has supported the idea of a statue for many years and now at last it's a reality! The Museum's own living 'Sherlock Holmes' will still greet visitors to Baker Street as they emerge from   Baker StreetUnderground Station and visitors will therefore still be able to receive Sherlock Holmes's famous business card which the Museum has been distributing to tourists for the last decade.

The statue is expected to draw many new overseas tourists to London, as over 95% of visitors to London are familiar with the exploits of the great detective and many make their way to Baker Street to see his lodgings. Sherlock Holmes has for over a century been widely regarded as a British Institution and an important part of England's literary heritage.
