Sherlock Holmes: the quotations; the pipes; the author (the public house named after him - the worst in Scotland, judging by the comments); the top ten lists; the vulcan; the city; the monographs; the magazine; the marvelous stories, of course; and more.

Don't forget the museum.

Not the location you expect it at, but Sherlock's (temporary) death took place at the Reichenbach falls nearby.

Thanks for the links!

If you're a fan of Holmes, or Lovecraft, or just like good short stories, you could do a lot worse than check out Neil Gaiman's Hugo nominated Holmes/Cthulu tale A Study In Emerald.

(Not a massive fan of Gaiman's prose, but this is pretty frabjous)

The Conan Doyle may not be the best, but the Sherlock Holmes Pub in London is great. I spent a great deal of time there drinking snakebites.

After I read the complete works in 2000, I came up with this list of my favorite Sherlock Holmes quotes.

Nice statue too. 221 Baker Street still gets letters addressed to Mr. Holmes, who is certainly NOT fictional according to many of his fans :)
