Sherlock Holmes Filmed Outside Bloomsbury International!

Sherlock Holmes

On Saturday 26th July, filming of a new high profile film took place opposite Bloomsbury International. It was for a new feature film called “Mr. Holmes” starring Ian McKellan, which will be released next year .

The small street opposite Bloomsbury International (Barter Street) was closed for the day and was turned into a street from 1919, with old style signs, an old bookshop and even horses and carts!

Below you will find some photos taken on the day:
