We’ve read and seen many things for Guy Ritchie‘s upcoming new vision of Sherlock Holmes, which is finally preparing to be released tomorrow on Christmas Day. To celebrate the release of this new movie as well as the history of the cherished Arthur Conan Doyle character itself, Londonist went above and beyond the above and beyond to bring us a very cool new look at the actual locations within the world surrounding Holmes: London. The beloved England city is as much a character of the Sherlock Holmes mythology as Watson is, and now you can visit the places and general locations that the crime solving duo visit with this detailed mapping. Head on over to the website to check out their handy work!
The impressive thing about this interactive map is that they didn’t half-ass it at all; the website went ahead and re-read all of the old Sherlock Holmes stories and put together all of the locations to map out. It comes handy with a key that specifies precise locations, general locations, actual Holmes-related locations, and paths that were traveled. No word yet on how many of these locations will be featured in this latest Sherlock Holmes adventure.
If I lived across the pond, I just might have to go on a little adventure some day and check these places out. Visiting the places you learn about in history classes, read about in books, and see in movies is always exciting, and maps like this make it all that much easier for you to plan out!
Sherlock Holmes stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, and Mark Strong.
