If you are looking for a place to stay in London anywhere around here is great if a little busy for traffic. There are loads of points of interest within a short walk plus great shops and restaurants and it is a safe area. Also transport links are amazing with 3 tube lines, loads of buses, Kings Cross St Pancras... More

After arriving at Covent Garden Underground Station, we had explored Covent Garden on foot. We then walked on up to the Leister Square area to explore that area. From Leicester Square, we walked up Shaftesbury Avenue which then took us on into High Holborn. High Holborn is a significant thoroughfare from Holborn through to Charing Cross Road. Whilst walking along... More

Strolling from Holborn underground station eastwards, it might appear at first sight that this street is not particularly special. But wait, look closely at the London Rosewood (hotel) and see what a great building is here, previously occupied by Pearl Assurance, with a fabulous interior courtyard. And soon enough, one enters the legal areas with Chancery Lane off to the... More

This is a great area, 0.5 mi to the British museum, arguably the Best museum in the world! Has multiple stops on the tube's central line. There are local M&S and Tesco, SportsConnection.com shops and my favorite, a pub that serves beer from Yorkshire's oldest brewery, Cittie of York, and they have Samuel Smith's double stout on tap, BONUS! or...

This area is not that interesting if you are in London for only a short visit. You can pass going there on purpose.

High Holborn is a street in central London that runs with Charing Cross Road, Grays Inn and Southampton Row. Closest tube stations are Holborn, Chancery lane and Tottenham Court Road. A lot of hotels, offices and residential streets are in the neighbourhood, but for the most part it retains a business/ commercial outlook.

High Holborn is a very interesting street in London which is steeped in history and is worth exploring. Walking between the two underground stations of Holborn and Chancery Lane one passes the Honourable Society of Gray's Inn, home of barristers and its lovely gardens, and many other buildings associated with Courts and the legal profession. There are some wonderful historic... More
