This road is not much of an attraction in itself. Some of the architecture is interesting but there are some hidden attractions especially the London Silver Vaults at the North end and Lincoln's Inn to the West.

Chancery Lane connects Fleet Street with High Holborn. Historically, the street is associated with the legal profession. This continues to the present day with consulting firms and other business occupying the street now.

A very old street that has not been hit as hard by the 1960's knock-em-down and replace with concrete mania. Therefore, a good mix of architectural styles going back through the centuries.

Chancery Lane might have some historical and architectural points to it but I tend to associate this part of London with the Jewelers. This is a great area to pick up a nice engagement ring or two.

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
