In a word... timeless

Some of the World’s best have given Conan Doyle’s beloved characters new faces, bodies and personalities. His flexible and vibrant characters allow a constant rejuvenation and new embodiment time and time again. We actively seek the new, the daring and exciting to keep the tempo fast paced and relevant for whichever reinvention comes next.

The International Reach of The Conan Doyle Estate

The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes is just one example of the global reach and world class expertise that The Conan Doyle Estate can provide. Our international network of specialists have been closely involved in consultancy and detailing for the making of the exhibition and it was with pride that it was opened in 2013 at the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry by Richard Doyle, senior director of The Conan Doyle Estate and Sir Arthur’s grandnephew. The latest stop for the exhibition is in Jersey, in 2019.

Working with The Conan Doyle Estate, The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes has been able to bring Sherlock to life. With the help of our experts the exhibition allows the visitor to step into Conan Doyle’s Victorian London and work side-by-side with his legendary detective.

Authentic and detailed knowledge has been the key to this international event travelling the world with global acclaim. Visitors are Holmes’ eyes and ears as he tackles a baffling new case in a world steeped in innovation and experimentation and even learn to use investigative tools and techniques from Holmes himself. The Estate has not only consulted but provided an array of original manuscripts, publications, period artefacts, film and television props and costumes to give a fully rounded, fully validated experience straight from the family Estate.
