The exhibition focuses on the "third character" of the Sherlock Holmes stories - the city of London.

You can't have Sherlock Holmes without Watson and you can't have the two of them without London. For me London is the third character, the essential element in the stories."

– Alex Werner, head of history collections at the Museum of London
