Holborn area guide

Holborn's busy thoroughfares cannot hide its Dickensian past, indeed the celebrated author and reformer lived and worked here and based some of his characters on people he came across in the area. This district is a conduit between the City and the West End and may be said to contain the best of both worlds, playing host to a large number of shops and hotels whilst still retaining a number of character-laden old pubs. The Inns of Court, with their fine buildings and lush enclosed green spaces are located here, next to the former journalists' stomping ground, Fleet Street, and the Strand, a grand theatre strip that leads past the world famous Savoy Hotel on its way to Trafalgar Square.

Holborn underground station is serviced by Piccadilly and Central Line. Many bus routes run along Holborn and Kingsway.
