Baker Street is a street in the Marylebone district of the City of Westminster in London. It is named after builder William Baker, who laid the street out in the 18th century. The street is most famous for its connection to the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, who lived at a fictional 221B Baker Street address. The area was originally high class residential, but now is mainly occupied by commercial premises.Baker Street is a busy thoroughfare, lying in postcode areas NW1/W1 and forming part of the A41 there. It runs south from Regent's Park, the junction with Park Road, parallel to Gloucester Place, meeting Marylebone Road, Portman Square and Wigmore Street. At the junction with Wigmore Street, Baker Street turns into Orchard Street, which ends when it meets with Oxford Street. After Portman Square the road continues as Orchard Street.The street is served by the London Underground by Baker Street tube station, one of the world's oldest surviving underground stations. Next door is Transport for London's lost property office.

  • Recently opened cafe on Baker Street, attached to the Sherlock Holmes Hotel. Looks very nice from the outside, and the inside is tastefully decorated. I stopped in at the weekend for a cup of coffee ad a slice of cake, both of which were good - although the flat white was not as good as I'd expect from say Workshop, it was certainly better than I'd expect at Starbucks or Costa which are both nearby. The selection of more substantial food looked good - there were a number of quiches, sandwiches and salads, and the friendly staff said that what is on offer changes frequently.
  • Good coffee ☕
