Oooh you been in London Town? x
I have, I have! With my biggest boy! Such larks!
Elementary Christine!! Was it easy to track down or did you have to investigate lots of avenues!? Lol ok I am off now xx
We took our magnifying glasses and our deerstalkers and we got there in the end! x
Oh wow! That’s awesome! I have no idea why I’m quite so psyched as I don’t even like the Sherlock Holmes books! But oooooh!
LOL at you! It was very ooooh, especially if you managed to blinker your eyes and not see all the tourists!
Was Gerry Rafferty there too?😉
Thankfully not! My teen would’ve run a mile!😀
This one has always confused me. Wasn’t Sherlock Holmes a fictional character? Why does he get a Blue Plaque? Does Dangermouse have one too on the post box? :0)
I LOVE the idea of Dangermouse having one…he should! Let’s start a campaign!😀
I couldn’t quite see it to check at first but the number is so clear & well known. Good spot Chris!
We hunted it down!😀
Lol at Liz’s comment, I would never have thought about the peculiarity of a fictional character having a plaque, but I’m intrigued about Dangermouse too, now.
I think there is also one on the Old Curiosity Shop but I can’t remember where it is.
Ooh, another one for our magnifying glasses and deerstalkers, we’ll have to track it down!
I love Blue Plaques! I take it you had a good walk around whilst the Mr was on W Ex?
He was with me! We ‘did’ the V&A and this after we’d finished at Westminster!
Hope you were wearing the hat
In my imagination I was…I wasn’t too keen on the idea of popping the one they had there for photographs on to my head or sucking on the pipe, too many people had already been there. Ewww!
I really must get to London at some point so many intresting things!
I’m just discovering it! Such fun!
Ooooh, nice. Was Jude Law about? Or Robert Downey Jr.? Hehe!
Oooh, how fantastic.
It was! We had a fabulous time!
Yes, I wonder how many other fictional characters have blue plaques? It would be good to find out…
It would and maybe a few of them who haven’t, should!
Oh how fabulous! Hope you and your lovely boy had a wonderful day x
We really, really did! Thank you!🙂
Oh I love finding special places, like birth houses, places where famous people lived and and and. So exciting…
It’s not a bad way to spend a day!
Brilliant…and a new series is starting too soon! Are you a Sherlock fan? I just loved it. x
I am indeed! My boy has read all the books too which is why he wanted to go and find it.🙂
It was a bit touristy if I panned down!
I do love spotting blue plaques! There is one in on a building in Isleworth, West London indicating that Vincent Van Gogh once lived there. Always caught my eye and made me think ‘Hope he didn’t cut his ear off there!’
Oh goodness! Maybe the ear is still there! In a plastic case! Bleurgh!
If this is the right place then this is where I work🙂
It’s 221b Baker Street, London. ‘Home’ of Sherlock Holmes🙂
ooh nice. x
