Holborn Useful Information
Holborn is a trendy area in Central London, which runs across the border of the City of London and the London Borough of Camden. The famous author Charles Dickens once resided here, and based the main character ‘Pip’ from ‘Great Expectations’ in Barnard’s Inn, across the road from where he himself was staying. And that’s not the only claim to fame held by this area; the London weather centre was based in Holborn up until 1992, and you can still see a plaque at 120 High Holborn, which commemorates the invention of the Marine chronometer by Thomas Earnshaw. It was thanks to him that we were able to travel long distance, so we have a lot to be grateful to him for!
These days, many new offices and hotels are built here, such as the headquarters for J Sainsburys; it’s ideal for business due to its central location and easy transport links to other areas of London. Nearby, you’ve got Bloomsbury, Charing Cross, Clerkenwell, Covent Garden and Soho. Many people don’t realise that these areas are actually well within walking distance! Holborn has its own London Underground station, as well as many buses running to different areas around the city. It’s never difficult to get a taxi in Holborn either; with so many business people, local residents and tourists bustling around, Holborn minicabs in WC1 are kept busy.
For centuries, Holborn has been home to legal professionals. During the battle for power between City and Westminster, ancient legal centres called The Inns of Court were here to act as the mediator. You’ll still find plenty of lawyers working in this area today, though things are run a little differently now! Known for the high density of ‘legal eagles, you won’t be short of leather briefcases and pinstripe suits here.
Although many buildings around central London were ruined in the Great Fire of 1666, some historical marvels thankfully survived. Take the Staple Inn, for example; the timber framed front is impressive and beautiful, reminiscent of something you’d find in Stratford-Upon-Avon. If you’re interested in British history, there will be plenty to keep you busy here.
However, you don’t need to be a lawyer or a historian to enjoy this part of London. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, as well as shops and hotels. Although you don’t have any of the more famous landmarks or tourist attractions based exactly here, it’s still a great spot to stay in if you’re visiting the city. The rest of London is so easy to reach, especially with the WC2 minicabs Holborn has to offer and easy public transport links.
