Baker Street the home of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes comes right up to the Marylebone Road and very close to Regents Park in London. There is an underground station right on Baker Street and is an easy walk to Regents Park.

I loved that when I came out of the tube station I was in Sherlock land. The house and Museum are right around the corner. The feel of the area is great. Fun shops too.
