There are thousands of pages over the net about the all time great detective Sherlock Holmes .So I'm  just displaying some pictures and links to some good and usefull  web sites here.
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived at 221b Baker Street between 1881-1904, according to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The famous study overlooking Baker Street
that has been portrayed in so many films
over the years is located on the 1st floor
above a flight of 17 steps. Visitors can sit in
Mr Holmes’s armchair by the fireside to pose
for photos and enter his bedroom adjoining
the study, but please bring your own pipe to
smoke! His possessions are in their usual
places: his deerstalker, magnifying glass,
calabash pipe, violin, chemistry equipment, 
notebook, Persian slipper and disguises.

What does Holmes say about himself?

 "My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know."
~Sherlock Holmes to James Ryder: The Blue Carbuncle

 "I get in the dumps at times, and don't open my mouth for days on end. You must not think I am sulky when I do that. Just let me alone, and I'll soon be right."
~Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson: A Study in Scarlet

 "I have been beaten four times - three times by men and once by a woman."
~Sherlock Holmes to John Openshaw: The Five Orange Pips

 "I have a turn both for observation and for deduction."
~Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson: A Study in Scarlet

 "My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. I can dispense then with artificial stimulants. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation. "
~Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson: The Sign of Four

 "I am the most incurably lazy devil that ever stood in shoe leather - that is, when the fit is on me, for I can be spry enough at times."
~Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson: A Study in Scarlet

 "My mind is like a racing engine, tearing itself to pieces because it is not connected up with the work for which it was built."
~Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson: The Man with the Twisted Lip

 "No,no; I never guess. It is a shocking habit- destructive to the logical faculty."
~Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson: The Sign of Four
