Nessie & Darren's Photo Galleries

 

Sherlock Holmes

&

Mousetrap

 

I, Nessie, was back in Britain from Japan on June 10th after two months,

and on June 14th I was able to have a celebration of my birthday with Darren in London.

It was a lot of fun to walk around the City and taste British traditional meals in a long while.

This day, Darren and I enjoyed learning about King and Queen of the mystery from Britain,

Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie.

First, we visited the Sherlock Holmes Museum on Baker Street,

and then enjoyed the murder mystery play by Agatha Christie,

“The Mousetrap” at St. Martine’s Theatre.

It was really lovely birthday!! (June 30th, 2010)

 

 

At St. Paul’s Garden, roses were blooming all over the place.

 

Mr. Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe was just opened on Fleet Street.

If you have a sweet tooth, you must visit this place.

 

 

 

At The Pie Shop at the Covent Garden, you can find a variety of British traditional pies.

Sometimes you can enjoy live music while having the meal!

The Sherlock Holmes Museum

 

The Sherlock Holmes Museum is a popular privately-run museum in London,

dedicated to the famous detective, Sherlock Holmes.

The opening of this museum to the public on 27th March (Oh! My sister’s birthday!)

1990 was an event, which should have happened several decades ago.

 

 

 

 

“Elementary, my dear follow!!” You might be able to hear his famous word, here!!

 

Holmes or Moriarty? That’s the question!!

 

You can see Holmes’s belongings.

Many people in the world believe that Holmes was (or is) a real person.

Every day letters for him arrive at this museum.

 

Detective are often more famous than the writers who create them.

Do you know who wrote Sherlock Holmes stories?

It’s me, Arthur Conan Doyle.

I should have been (or should be) more famous than Holmes!!!

 

 

 

Some of exhibitions look creepy and dangerous!!

 

Oh! Is this a calendar from Holmes’s period??

It tells my birth date : )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the each floor, you find figures, which show Holmes’s stories.

If you can guest the right all stories, you must be a Sherlockian.

 

 

 

 

“The Hound of the Baskervilles” must be one of the most well known Sherlock Holmes stories.

The ghostly black huge dog is probably scarier than any other criminals in Holmes stories.

 

Holmes’s bathroom is stylish!! Maybe this style is for Holmes’s woman clients!?

 

You might be able to hear a greeting from the page boy.

“Welcome” or “Thank you! Please visit us again!!”

At the theatre, you can get a souvenir book, which tells theatrical history.
