About Arthur & George

The official Arthur Conan Doyle website.
The Arthur & George website - it's a little frustrating to get through the slow opening screens, but there's a fun quiz once you get inside.
On a visit to England, any Conan Doyle fan worth his salt will pay a visit to 221b Baker Street, the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes (now a museum); but true fans should take themselves on a day-trip out of London to Haslemere, where Conan Doyle lived for many years. Indeed, you can even stay in his house, Undershaw, which is now a restaurant and hotel - but hurry, I'm told it's up for sale!
