This pub has a little secret, too, a complete recreation of Holmes and Watson's study and sitting room with a large collection of objects and photographs related to the characters from the books and adaptations. So if solving mysteries is your thing, head down The Sherlock Holmes Pub and get your thinking cap on, along with a pint (or few!).

The Punch and Judy is a world famous pub landmark in its own right. Built in 1787, was thought to be named after the famous Punch and Judy puppet performances that used to take place in Covent Garden's Piazza for the children of flower-sellers.
