Holborn Hotels - London

Mini guide to Holborn


Holborn (pronounced 'ho burn') is known as London's legal centre, with the Old Bailey and Temple courts located here. During the week, you can see barristers with their gowns and wigs walking around. The Temple, which derives its name from the Knights Templar, is a set of buildings with wonderful inner courtyards and the Temple Hall is well worth a visit.

For something different, and not for the faint-hearted, visit the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons, located in Lincoln's Inns Fields. Here you can see everything from human anatomy specimens to zoological specimens.

One of London's most historic and famous restaurants, Simpson's-in-the Strand (Charing Cross tube station) has been serving traditional British food since the 19th century. For something different, dine at the modern Bank Restaurant, on the corner of Aldwych and Kingsway (Holborn tube station). The restaurant is housed in an old bank building and serves modern British food, brasserie style.

For theatre, go to the Lyceum Theatre on Wellington Street, the current home of The Lion King, and the Victoria Palace Theatre that hosted Grease. Both are accessible via Charing Cross or Holborn tube stations.

Courtauld Gallery is home to some of the world's most famous Impressionist paintings. The gallery is housed in the beautiful Somerset House (on the Strand) and during summer the courtyard is used for open-air concerts and other events. Access is via Charing Cross or Holborn tube stations.

Although not quite in the centre of London, Holborn provides excellent access to the main tourist areas as well as train access to areas outside London. It is adjacent to the 'City' Londons business area, and also a few minutes walk from the entertainment cluster of Covent Garden.

Access is via Holborn station, serviced by the Central and Piccadilly lines - providing direct access to the South Kensington and Knightsbridge as well as Piccadilly Circus areas. Charing Cross station, which services many Southern destinations outside of London, is also not far away.
