Well, this must be one of the world's most notable addresses, remembered by schoolchildren and great grandparents alike as being the home the celebrated (fictional) detective Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John H. Watson who lived at 221b Baker Street between 1881-1904, according to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The house was last used as a lodging house in 1936 and the famous 1st floor study overlooking Baker Street is still faithfully maintained as it was kept in Victorian Times.
Were you in a mind to transfer your business to our Capital City you could do far worse than seek some serviced office space in Baker Street as anywhere with a W1 postcode is highly sought after and regarded as "upmarket" which indeed it is.
