  • Reason for inclusion: A contender for the location of the opium den known as the Bar of Gold, Upper Swandam Lane

    Accessibility: Visible from the outside.

    Description: Upper Swandam Lane does not exist. It has been argued that Watson deliberately hid the location by describing it as east of London Bridge. Holmes actually states the den is close to Paul’s Wharf which certainly does exist and is to the west of London Bridge. My contender is the delightfully named ‘Stew Lane’ which ends with The Samuel Pepys pub overlooking the Thames as the Bar of Gold would have done.
