Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House

Probably the Fleet Street tour, as it includes the oldest pub in London plus the pub with the oldest interior in London, plus loads of local London history, plus excellent variety of real ales.
