A MAJOR exhibition of Arthur Conan Doyle’s greatest literary creation is to take place in London.

The Sherlock Holmes exhibition will take place in the Museum of London from tomorrow. The exhibition will be the largest of its kind for over 60 years, drawing on the museum’s Victorian and Edwardian collection and bringing together Sherlock Holmes material from across the globe. Several key international loans, such as a turn-of-the-century portrait of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and a bust of Sherlock Holmes, both of which are from the Sherlock Holmes Museum in Switzerland, will be on display in the exhibition.

The exhibition runs until April 12 next year.
