Address
Neighborhood: Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.

Many places in and around this area. Some many things to see and do, places to sit and just people watch or stop off at a cafe for a coffee or tea.

Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa, High Holborn, Covent Garden
Aug 2018 • Friends
Can't find this logged anywhere so review here.
Visited the spa today with another lady for shellac pedicures as we wanted it as part of a day out to London, really good setting, massive place, hair, spa, nails, and cafe plus shop. Pedi's were good, sat side by side which is what we wanted. overall nice experience. Shellac pedi - £43 ea. approx 45 mins. Area of Covent Garden excellent for any tourists, and set not far from central attractions.

Office workers area

There are attractions for people such as the British Museum, interesting streets like Lamb’s Conduit Street and some small streets and passages; however, High Holborn is very busy with workers. If you are in the area during the week, avoid before and avoid office hours along with lunch-time; the footpath and roads are always busy (same applies with public transport), especially at lunch and after work; even worse before work when everyone almost starts at the same time.

A very busy London road!
Jul 2017 • Couples
While staying in London again, we had taken along walk through the West End theatre district.
Eventually we headed north and found ourselves strolling along High Holborn heading for the Chancery Lane tube station.
This was our second walk along High Holborn, having undertaken a similar walk during a previous stay in London. Not a lot had changed since our last visit. The traffic along the one-way roadway was still extremely heavy, contributing to poor air quality. There are a number of handsome buildings located along the road, some of them housing shops, cafes and restaurants.
While it was an interesting walk, there really is not a great which may be of any great interest to tourists, located along this roadway!

Interesting looking buildings but in a city full of them I wouldn't say that this was worth a detour unless you are walking past anyway.

As i was in London all day i went for several little wanders around our wonderful city.Many parks are dotted around the Bloomsbury/High Holborn areas which became very busy during the lunch period.The thing i enjoyed about High Holborn was the little ''arcade''areas with people eating and drinking and boutique style shops in the back streets....High Holborn is,like Oxford Street,a little chaotic for my liking....and the amount of people i had to dodge whilst they text walked toward me carelessly only added to the everyday challenges.....full of typical London atmosphere.....but not for me.visited 24th August 2017.

A busy area, with loads of shops bars and things to do, minutes away from Covent Garden and Leicester Square. Close to the tube, 2 stops from kings cross.

Betwixt and between; neither the West End nor quite the City; Junction of Holborn and Southampton Row must be one of the most horrible to navigate whether as a driver or pedestrian; Holborn station where the Central and Piccadilly Lines bisect; hear the trains in the basement of a Korean restaurant; adjacent to Red Lion Square and Chancery Court Hotel with a croissant stall and bar serving delicious lunchtime curries; damn good chicken in a basement closer to Tottenham Court Road; get to Chancery Lane and you're on the fringes of legal London; Gray's Inn; fabulous old pub (not gastro); Mas Qui Menos tapas bar but closed mornings as it can't compete with multiple branches of Pret A Manger in swift succession; new branch of Blsckwells but half the downstairs rapidly converted into Costa Coffee yet another Costa Coffee not half a mile down the road; Central Family Court.
