The Holborn area of London used to be known for it's many places of entertainment in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today it is a little more sedate although still has many places of interest to visit.
The area is the home to many of the top legal firms, barristers and courts of justice including Lincoln Inn fields and The Temple.
If you are looking for a quite place to get away from the hustle of the city then the beautiful squares and gardens around the courts of justice are perfect to relax in.
The area was also the home of Britain's main newspapers which were found in Fleet street. Still a fascinating street to visit.
