10 Day Sherlock Tour

Looking for 4-6 hardcore Sherlock fans to meet me in London for a 10 day Sherlock Tour of a lifetime.You don't have to be British fans. In fact, a mixed group from around the world would be best. More details available if you're interested.

Oh this sounds interesting!

Re: 10 Day Sherlock Tour

It's something is definitely love to do, however I have to be careful with the month of May because it's quite an important month at college. I would only know whether it's okay closer to the date.

Re: 10 Day Sherlock Tour

I might be potentially interested, and the dates are kind of perfect because I was planning to go to Bristol for the weekend of May 17/18 and have already taken time off work for that week. I'd have to know more details, though. And, I don't know, I'm a bit skeptical to plan a whole vacation with people I've never met... Can you PM or e-mail me more details (tj_teejay [at] gmx.net)?

Re: 10 Day Sherlock Tour

I wonder why I'm being so secretive about the itinerary. I should just post the rough agenda here and generate more interest, right?

Re: 10 Day Sherlock Tour

Potentially interested, but work in a school so May wouldn't work for me.  What are the chances of changing the dates or should I hope for a return trip one day??

Re: 10 Day Sherlock Tour

Aw that sounds like a lot of fun!


But sadly I might have to work for the Eurovision during those dates ...

Re: 10 Day Sherlock Tour

Hi. I am new to this forum (joined only today) but I just wanted to declare my interest

I live in central London, and live  just 15 minutes walk from St Barts and know where all the London locations are so would be able to assist with getting everyone to them if required. I have visited them myself and laid down in the very spot where Sherlock laid outside the hospital
