Local Insight & Information

Well known as London’s law capital, Holborn has some spectacular architecture and an amazing history behind it. The area is brimming with business men and women and pre 1980s it was also an extremely popular area for the press reflected by the large volume of media professionals who can still be found working within Holborn’s borders. The area is also home to London’s largest public square with beautiful scenery and an idyllic spot to eat lunch. Iconic shops and entertainment destinations and of course plenty of choice in places to dine and unwind after a hard day’s grind can also be easily sourced within this region.

HOLBORN

The Royal Courts of Justice are possibly the most momentous thing about Holborn. It is designed in the signature Gothic style of George Edmund Street and is the last large public building of its style. Constructed out of Portland stone this immense building is immediately striking for more reasons than one. Decorative carvings feature within the stone and the pinnacles and chimneys provide the notable spikey gothic roof of this inspirational structure. It also has many features of a typical cathedral including soaring arches, stunning stain glass windows and mosaic marble floor lacing the maze of corridors within. The other end of the spectrum of beautiful architecture in Holborn houses such establishments as superb theatres and intriguing museums. Peacock Theatre is one such site which should be visited when working in Holborn. With a programme from the highly reputable Sadler’s Wells this theatre stages outstanding and innovative performances in the world of dance. You can rely on something unique and spectacular each time you visit here with varied and thrilling dance shows, operas and musical productions. During the Christmas period a remarkable rendition of the well-loved children’s show The Snowman can also be experienced at the Peacock.

Unique places do not stop at the architecture within Holborn and there are also a few phenomenal places to eat and shop. The Mirror Room is an elegant and luxurious restaurant offering delights in British and European dishes as well as sophisticated afternoon tea. Creating a living room style environment complete with plenty of unique mirrors, warm lighting and lounging sofas and arm chairs, it is a pleasure to dine in this surrounding. On the menu throughout the day you can sample anything from appetising sharing plates, seasonal salads, comfort food favourites and signature patisseries. London Silver Vaults is a similarly unique and interesting place to visit in Holborn but in retail form. Originally opened as a vault in which people rented space to store their silverware and jewellery, following its heavy destruction during the war, the sliver dealers who used the vaults requested the place to be re-opened as the store it is today. The place currently contains the largest display of silver under one roof in the world and consists of thirsty stores in total.

Holborn Developments and History

As well as awe-inspiring buildings there is also exquisite parkland to be enjoyed within Holborn. Lincoln’s Inn Fields is the largest public square in London and has plenty of history attached to it. Boarded by historic buildings as well as having an array of memorials in its grounds, this park is more than just a serene lunchtime destination or walk to work. The site is also a popular spot for barristers to host their chambers’ summer parties and games of netball and tennis can be played here as well it accommodating a band or two.

The name Holborn has derived from the words Hole and Bourne referring to the River Fleet which ran to the east of the area. The locality was an important thoroughfare in which criminals were transported along from The Tower and Newgate to Tyburn. Originally a deserted field near the city, the Inns of Court on either side of the thoroughfare along with the instillation of the tollgate saw the area develop in to a village of its own. Despite surviving the turmoil of The Great Fire of London, the area was highly developed after this incident and these buildings are those which mainly shape the layout of the area today.
