Sherlock Holmes Quiz

Here at Treasure Trails, we love our murder mystery Trails and have had lots of comments from customers over the years who have played detective when solving them!   Sherlock Holmes is probably one of Britain’s greatest fictional detectives and figures in many people’s early literary forays.

He is one of those guys that we all know and love - but do we really know him, his creator and of course his friend Dr Watson?

Just for fun we’ve put together just a few quickie questions to amuse you and will publish the answers next week on this blog.  In the meantime, pop over to our facebook page and give our Sherlock picture a “like” so we know you do!
