Sherlock Filming Locations In England And Wales

Sherlock filming location: St Barts Hospital, London

Sherlock / Lontoo, Iso-Britannia

We’ve visited tons of Sherlock filming locations during our adventures around the UK. We’ve been to fake Baker Street (aka North Gower St in London), fake London (aka Cardiff, Wales) and we’ve stood and stared at the empty spot where Sherlock’s gravestone once stood.

We’ve also spent days and days watching the show being filmed and met the stars a couple of times.

For your information: Benedict Cumberbatch is as kind and humble (even in the Wales rain) as you think he is. He was worried we were cold and spent a good while chatting to us, even after a long day of filming some season 3 scenes.

We’ve stumbled through the tiny gates of the church where John and Mary got married and the other church in St Hilary, where Sherlock implies John being his only friend. We’ve imagined hearing strange noises at the misty, scary caves where the hound of Baskerville circled our heroes, and looked up on the rooftop where Sherlock said his goodbyes to John.

It’s been an amazing, emotional journey and along the way we’ve collected quite a few sceneframing photos. Since we’re such jolly good fellows and good-hearted gals, we’ve collected them all here for your viewing pleasure and convenience, along with a detailed map of all of them!

New: Sherlock filming locations in Cardiff

Bush Inn is a lovely restaurant for lunches and pints, and the church of St. Hilary is right next to it so you can visit both at the same time. Three Bears Cave is near Cardiff, but a bit tricky to find so we recommend going during daylight. Sherlock’s gravestone isn’t actually there, but if you look through the scene carefully, you will find the right spot quite easily once you reach the graveyard.
