The Conan Doyle

Near the birthplace of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The Conan Doyle

Just across the road from Picardy Place, the birthplace of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (where you’ll also find an impressive statue of Sherlock Homes) the pub is a veritable shrine to the author and his most famous creation. A place to ponder your two-packets-of-crisps problems.

The pub provides a wealth of information about Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes, as well as the surrounding area. Inside, there is paraphernalia celebrating Sherlock Holmes and the detective trade as well as a large portrait of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
