Northumberland Street

St James

London, WC2N 5DB

Onscreen, Northumberland Street is where the restaurant Sherlock and John visit to attempt to entrap the killer of the Pink Lady is located. However, in reality that scene was shot in Broadwick Street in the borough of Soho.

The real Northumberland Street is actually located in Westminster, a few minutes' walk east from Charing Cross station and Trafalgar Square down Northumberland Avenue, and shares a couple of existing Sherlock Holmes links.

Principally, the most striking building in the street is The Sherlock Holmes Pub, located right on the south eastern corner of the road, connecting to Northumberland Avenue which in turn leads to the Thames. Both externally and internally the pub is a near shrine to Conan Doyle era Holmes, featuring decoration and a striking display of period memorabilia in the upstairs restaurant. As well as this, the pub restaurant has an imaginative and extensive themed menu, with colourful and inventive meal names referencing the fiction.

Directly opposite the Pub is a road named Great Scotland Yard. The original Metropolitan Police Commissioner's office in Whitehall had a rear public entrance backing into Great Scotland Yard, and in time the name was adopted for the principal Metropolitan Police station in the English capital, as well as a generalisation for the London Police service itself.
