221b Baker Street might be the most famous flat in the world, but Bristol also deserves to be in the address book of Sherlock fans.

Ever since the very first episode, when Benedict Cumberbatch’s Holmes came face-to-face with Moriarty in Bristol South Swimming Pool, the city’s boasted regular cameos.

Most recently, The Abominable Bride showed off some of Bristol’s best-known sights, including historic Queen Square (where Emilia Ricoletti shot at passersby), 850-acre Ashton Court (the carriage scenes) and sprawling Arnos Vale Cemetery (where Sherlock visits Ricoletti’s grave).

Now Bristol Film Office has mapped out the main locations so fans can follow in Sherlock’s footsteps. They’re all within a 3km radius of the centre and most can be reached on foot.
