METROPOLITAN LINE
Baker Street

The final stop I get off at on the Metropolitan Line is that of Baker Street, in Marylebone. It is most famous for its connection to the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, who lived at 221B Baker Street, an address that did not actually exist in Sherlock Holmes' era (the address now graces a building housing a "Sherlock Holmes museum"). The street is named after builder William Baker who laid the street out in the 18th century. It was originally a high class residential address, but now is mainly occupied by commercial premises. In 1835, the first permanent exhibition of Madame Tussauds waxworks was opened on Baker St. The museum moved, just around the corner, to Marylebone Road in 1884.

can't get enough of London....
Really like actual and newest pics
Really want to see unusual and industrial places of London, but also tourist places are still good.
So, I love history. And this place, i think, has spirit of 19th century.

So, Great

Thanks very much. London is fantastic, discoveries of new places in the city all the time! I will venture to different parts of the city over time but there's so much to explore and time seems to vanish so quickly. It's been 3 weeks since this photo shoot in London!
