Guide to... Holborn

On the edges of Camden, the City of London, and Westminster, Holborn is a bland sort of place. It doesn't have the character of the Soho or Fitzrovia, the toughness of Camden, or the pomp and new money of the City of London. Holborn is however a very old area of London as marked on ancient maps largely due to the natural topography of the area.
