About Holborn

Centrally located and close to the City of London financial district, Holborn is a hub for the legal profession, and also for media professionals in London. Staying in Holborn corporate accommodation makes commuting to London straightforward.

A district in London’s West End, Holborn is a part of the London Borough of Camden. The area of Holborn spans around fifty hectares with a population of around three thousand, even though the district has disputed boundaries. Typically, the best way to describe Holborn is a collection of streets running from the north-east corner of Covent Garden towards Smithfield. It’s also a thriving business district, between London’s financial heart in The City, and the theatres and various other entertainments of Soho and the West End. Fleet Street is nearby and, even though the newspapers once synonymous with it have now moved away, the famous street is still seen as a spiritual home for journalism, attracting media professionals to the area. Our Holborn serviced apartments are ideally located, with the district being well connected to the rest of the city.

HISTORY OF HOLBORN

The first mention of the district came in a charter of Westminster Abbey created by King Edgar in the mid-tenth century. Many believe the town’s name derived from the Old English words ‘hoth burna’, which meant ‘stream in the hollow’, referring to the River Fleet. The opening of the Holborn Viaduct then came in 1869 before the construction of the six-way junction at Holborn Circus was completed in 1995. The two constructions are perhaps the most significant developments to emerge from Holborn. In the meantime, amidst it all, the district became a hub for journalism and legal establishments.

Therefore, Holborn attracted an influx of new offices and accommodation providers. Even the old neoclassical Pearl Assurance building was converted in 1999. Preserving historic buildings is important to the authorities as well though, such as the St Etheldreda’s Church. Visitors here can appreciate the many attractions whilst staying in Holborn aparthotels.

LIFE & ECONOMY

Generally speaking, Holborn’s economic qualities and values are often merged into overviews of London on the whole. Nevertheless, Holborn has maintained a reputation in recent times as a primarily commercial area, also acting as a convenient residential location just outside of central London. Developers are realising the potential of the area, as well as recognising the need to take advantage of how accommodation prices are out-performing Holborn’s better-known London neighbours.

The concentration of businesses has therefore increased in Holborn too, more so than other locations in Inner London. The October 2013 ‘Inner London’s Economy’ report highlights how Holborn has one of the highest numbers of business start-ups in the region too. Additionally, there is the knowledge that the area’s current in-demand status comes from its close proximity to the University of London, where students opt to stay in nearby Holborn extended stay apartments or temporary housing.

THINGS TO SEE

For the sheer amount of secret London packed into the least possible space, Holborn takes first prize. Additionally, there is as much to do in this little district as there is in the rest of Camden combined. Moreover, for those who don’t want to live the 24-hour London lifestyle, Holborn is a good place to stay. Although a busy commercial area by day, it’s relatively quiet at night. However, if a night on the town is what you are after, it’s only one stop on the Piccadilly Line to Covent Garden, or three to Piccadilly Circus, to enjoy some of London's best nightlife. Guests can benefit from coming home in the evening to the comfort of their Holborn furnished housing or short let.

Holborn also benefits from a great diversity of cultural and historical attractions. Even guests staying in Holborn short-term accommodation should make time to visit attractions such as the Charles Dickens Museum and October Gallery. Charles Dickens resided in Holborn during the 1830s, and his only surviving London home was opened as a Museum in 1925. Travellers from across the globe visit the museum. Its four floors include paintings, manuscripts, original furniture and many items personal to the famous Victorian writer. Also popular within Holborn is the October Gallery. The gallery was founded in 1979, renowned for exhibiting contemporary works. Many visitors believe the October Gallery is home to some of the best contemporary art worldwide. It is, therefore, understandable that the gallery and the surrounding Holborn area is popular amongst travellers to London.

The district of Holborn has much to offer, as an ideal location for commutes to London and as a hub for young professionals and great cultural attractions. Anyone looking to visit can stay in Holborn corporate housing when booking through SITU serviced apartments.
