Being the world's only consulting detective is not without its perks, and Sherlock Holmes manages to live a pretty swish lifestyle. How much would it cost to turn your flat into 221B Baker Street, and what could it cost to insure?
Total - £3190
Total - £3987
Sherlock and John's combined wardrobe for series 1 and 2 = £9,622
Even a mind as brilliant as Sherlock's needs some expensive gadgetry to help him crack the case - £16,000 worth, to be precise.
The total contents of 221B Baker Street are worth £36,323
Sherlock doesn't have great home security since Moriarty easily broke into his flat, so he should really get some home insurance on his stuff.
Sherlock Holmes's annual home insurance breakdown:
Total yearly premium for Sherlock= £558.38
£241.76 higher than the 2012 average for NW1 London
This doesn't take into account some of the possible insurance claims that Sherlock and friends have had to make over the past few years. These claims have increased Sherlock's premium by 15%.
