Faces on Friday - Music Student - Royal Academy of Music - London

Whilst exploring London recently I came across one of the buildings which is part of The University of London's Royal Academy of Music.

What an honour it must be to study here.  I was unable to ascertain if the young musician I have featured as my Face on Friday was actually a student there, he certainly looks as if he takes his studies very seriously. I think his instrument case is fabulous don't you?

Sherlock Holmes - Baker Street - London - England

During March I had a few days in London, where of course I took lots of photos, with plans to share them on Travel Tales.

If you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes, the museum and shop in Baker Street are well worth a visit.

Sherlock Holmes and his friend and colleague lived at 221b Baker Street, London, W1 from 1881 until 1904, according to the stories written Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. If you want to step back in time while you are in London, pay a visit to this famous address, where if you visit the museum, you will find his study overlooking Baker Street is just as it was in the Victorian Era.

No photos of the house interior but the ones I am sharing of the Museum shop may tempt you to visit if you get the opportunity.

Open every day of the year (except Christmas Day) from 9.30am - 6pm

Admission:  Adult £15 Child £10 (under 16yrs)
