One of the smaller central London squares, it is no doubt quiet most of the time, unfortunately I picked a day when tree surgeons were working. A lovely small café called Ginger Jules. Plenty of seats. Wilder than its twin Tavistock Square. There is a...More

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
