WHY NOT VISIT...
There is no need to stray too far
THE SHERLOCK HOLMES MUSEUM
Just a stone’s throw away is the world-famous 221B Baker Street. A charming museum celebrates Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective. www.sherlock-holmes.co.uk
Fancy meeting Albert Einstein, Charles Dickens, Marie Tussaud herself – or maybe someone who lived more recently? The wax museum still entertains after nearly 200 years. www.madametussauds.com
The Petrie Museum holds a leading collection of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology, with more than 80,000 objects. www.ucl.ac.uk/culture/petrie-museum
