St. Bartholomew's Hospital in Sherlock Holmes
  • In Doyle's A Study in Scarlet and the BBC's "A Study in Pink", a chemical laboratory here was where Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson first meet.
  • Also known as Barts in both Doyle's A Study in Scarlet and throughout the BBC's Sherlock series where it has a larger role.
  • "Barts is the oldest hospital in Europe, having been founded in 1123, and the oldest in the United Kingdom that still occupies its original site." — source Wikipedia.
  • It is from Bart's rooftop that Sherlock appears to jump to his death in "The Reichenbach Fall". It was on this rooftop a few minutes before that that Moriarity shot himself in the mouth so that he could not be forced to call off the people set to kill three people Sherlock cared about if Sherlock didn't jump off the roof.
  • Molly Hooper works at the morgue here and often allows Sherlock to use the lab and other facilities, though she sometimes says she shouldn't.
