Holborn is London’s historic law district, located close to the centre of London, well-connected to the rest of London with transport links by train, bus and underground and within walking distance of the City of London. The area radiates culture and style with a lively community made up of all-aged people: lawyers working in London’s legal quarters, students from London School of Economics, families with children at the area’s primary and secondary schools. Sandwiched between the vibrance and culture of Covent Garden and the business and city vibes of Farringdon, Holborn combines the best of the two. Gastropubs, international restaurants, rooftop bars and cosy cafes cater to a mixture of office workers and students from nearby universities.

History

The name “Holborn” is derived from hol and bourne meaning “hollow brook,” referring to the River Fleet that was later covered by Farringdon Street.
