Arthur Conan Doyle's home is on Tennison Road in London. The famed author, and creator of Sherlock Holmes, moved here in London, in 1891, soon after quitting his opthalmology practice, to take up writing full time. In December of 1893 The Strand Magazine published 'The Adventure of the Final Problem' in which Doyle killed off Sherlock Holmes, hoping to put the character behind him so he could embark on more serious writing. That same year his wife, Louisa, was diagnosed with tuberculosis and Doyle took her to Switzerland for treatment. When they returned in 1895, they moved to Surrey, England. In 1903 Sherlock Holmes would be resurrected. There is a blue plaque at the front door.
